Go safe with Ziggy

New approach to early level road safety

The approach probably looks very different from any other road safety resource you may have seen - or what you might expect.

The main aim is to engage and inspire young children and the adults around them to go on their own road safety learning journey.   

Go safe! Ziggy's road safety mission


Did you know, before a child is around 8 years of age they are simply not able to be completely safe independent road users? Research demonstrates that, even though many young children know and can say that they should STOP, LOOK and LISTEN when crossing a road, what they know and what they do can be two entirely different things.

Instead of focusing solely on gaining knowledge and understanding, road safety education for young children must aim to develop positive attitudes and behaviours

Road safety learning at early level should be a partnership between children and adults. Adults can give children the best possible start for life by setting good examples every time they cross a road, walk near a road or travel in a vehicle with a young child.
