Road safety education

Every day children and young people may find themselves in hazardous traffic situations.

Road safety education is about preparing them to become safer road users.

This section provides information on road safety education programs, resources and professional development that helps parents and schools deliver developmentally appropriate education to prepare children and young people to become safe and independent road users.

Directions: Western Australia's Road Safety Education Action Plan 2015- 2017 

This publication has been developed as part of an ongoing commitment to road safety education in Western Australia.

One of the aims of Directions: Western Australia's Road Safety Education Action Plan 2015-2017 is to communicate the comprehensive road safety education programs and services targeting young road users aged from birth to 18 years and their parents/carers, that are provided across the state as a contribution to the Towards Zero Road Safety Strategy 2008-2020.

Directions 2015-2017 is the third in a series of action plans that demonstrate best practice road safety education.


The Directions 2013-2015 Priority Outcomes Report summarises the high level of achievement from all organisations represented on the Western Australian Road Safety Education Committee (WARSEC).

The result is an enduring, collaborative contribution to road safety education in Western Australia and Towards Zero (the Western Australian Road Safety Strategy).

Of the 98 actions offered free to early childhood services, schools and community sites in Western Australia in 2013-2015, 95 were achieved (97%).


National Practices for Early Childhood Road Safety Education

The national practices will guide early childhood educators and policy makers to develop, implement and evaluate evidence based road safety programs that support children’s and families learning about road safety.

The National Practices for Early Childhood Road Safety Education have been developed by early childhood education and road safety experts across Australia and New Zealand. The eight national practices are based on research and are aligned with the Early Years Learning Framework.
