We all do a lot of walking in our lifetime. Therefore, it's important to teach your child the principles of road safety at an early age.

Take action:
Never let your child walk alone; hold hands, especially when crossing the road at intersections and driveways; teach your child the rules of the road at an early age – this way, these will become a habit; lead by example; make sure that your child is always noticeable – dress him in colours that are visible; take special care of the shoes your child wears and make sure they fit properly; only cross at corners, marked pedestrian crossings or at traffic lights; walk, don’t run; and steer clear of the curb and oncoming traffic.
