Pupils learn road safety

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News -

Young pupils from two Air­drie pri­mary schools re­ceived cer­tifi­cates from North La­nark­shire Coun­cil’s safe and sus­tain­able travel team af­ter suc­cess­fully com­plet­ing road safety train­ing.

The Pri­mary 1 and 2 pupils from Clark­ston and Glen­gowan pri­maries took part in the child pedestrian train­ing scheme.

The project is a prac­ti­cal, kerb­side, road safety pro­gramme aimed at re­duc­ing child pedestrian ca­su­al­ties and fa­tal­i­ties and en­cour­ag­ing chil­dren to be­com­ing in­de­pen­dent pedes­tri­ans in the fu­ture.

The young­sters re­ceived train­ing in three key skills: choos­ing safer places and routes to cross the road; cross­ing safely be­tween parked cars; and cross­ing safely at junc­tions.

Well done to all the young pedes­tri­ans on suc­cess­fully com­plet­ing the course.
