School Keep Clear Campaign
September 2014 sees the launch of a new school parking safety campaign which sees the Road Safety team produce an adapted version of a video showcasing hundreds of school children singing a song asking parents to park further away from the school gates avoiding the zig zags. The idea of the campaign is to raise awareness of safe parking surrounding schools and challenges Nottingham schools, parents and children to create their own version of the song.
For more information on the campaign and to see the videos please visit the School Keep Clear Campaign webpage.
Road Safety education
The City Council has operated a comprehensive Road Safety education programme for many years which uses the principles of early intervention to target appropriate safety education learning at key stages as children progress through school. This learning is used in adult life and in helping future generations of children.
The benefits of maintaining this service and driving new initiatives forward is reflected in significantly lower child accidents in the city both associated with schools but also as children use roads in their local community.
