Bus safety top tips

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

A SAFETY bus will be rolling into the East of Eng­land Show­ground in Peter­bor­ough to ed­u­cate chil­dren about avoid­ing haz­ards in the home, roads and rail­ways.

The LV= Street­wise Safety Bus Road­show will be an at­trac­tion dur­ing the East of Eng­land Show or­gan­ised by the East of Eng­land Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety from June 18 to 20.

Its aim is to help teach chil­dren, aged from five to 11, about safety in the home, on the roads and on the rail­ways.

The con­verted bendy bus in­cludes a life-sized kitchen, lounge area and rail haz­ard sim­u­la­tors and gives chil­dren the chance to be­come ‘dan­ger de­tec­tives’ and point out po­ten­tial ac­ci­dent hotspots.

It has been de­signed by safety ex­perts to help ed­u­cate chil­dren about the risk of ac­ci­dents and make them more aware of ev­ery­day dangers in the world around them by show­ing chil­dren dan­ger­ous sce­nar­ios in a re­al­is­tic set­ting.

The bus road­show is the first of its kind to tour around the UK.
