Police Road Safety Program for SA Kids

A free road safety program for primary school aged children across South Australia is being offered again by Police during the July school holidays.

Offered for the first time earlier this year at the Road Safety Centre, the program proved very popular, with more than 90 available spots filling quickly.

While most South Australian children usually have the opportunity to visit the Centre as part of a school excursion, not all schools participate, which is where the free holiday program comes in.

Participants in the two-hour program will have a classroom session, followed by a practical session of bike riding on the mock roadway to put into practice their new knowledge.

All equipment is supplied and the Road Safety Centre have a range of bicycles to cater for all riders.

Four sessions, covering two age groups, are being offered at Thebarton Police Barracks, Port Road, Thebarton from 10am to noon:

* Tuesday, 10 July for children 5 – 8 years

* Thursday, 12 July for children 9 – 12 years

* Tuesday, 17 July for children 5 – 8 years

* Wednesday, 18 July for children 9 -12 years

Spaces are limited, to make a booking, contact the Police Road Safety Section by calling 8207 6585.
