I was delighted to be asked along to our local schools Eagleswell Primary, St Illtuds Primary and Llanilltud Fawr Primary to present the Children whom had recently completed there Kerbcraft Training.

The Department for Transport Road Safety Division has appointed Transport Consultancy MVA to set up and manage a five year National Pilot Network of Child Pedestrian Training Schemes. The project, a key element in the Government's Road Safety Strategy, 'Tomorrow's Roads: Safer for Everyone' supports selected local authorities in providing local training schemes, with priority being given to children in more deprived areas and those with higher accident rates. The overall aim of the Pilot Network is to demonstrate how effective child pedestrian training schemes may be established and sustained in the longer term.

It is designed to teach pedestrian training skills to 5 to 7 year olds by means of practical road-side training rather than in the classroom. It is built around teaching three skills:- choosing safe places and routes; crossing safely at parked cars and crossing safely near junctions. Children are taught by trained volunteers near their schools
