Road Safety Resources
Road Rangers is a series of stories following 4 different characters on their journey to and from school. Each story covers a different topic that is accessible directly through the website on any computer, mobile or tablet device.
The online comic uses storytelling to teach basic road safety knowledge around holding hands, scooting, and using car seats and has been designed to be read with a parent, teacher or carer. There is additional information for parents, and even a story about parking on zig zag lines.

Transition resources for parents with Year 6 children:
- If you have a child starting secondary school in September, use an online mapping service (such as Google Maps) to map out their route to school… label areas where there is potential risk… talk to them about their journey to school and what they should watch out for to help increase their road safety awareness - you could use the Think map (may not be appropriate if your child has been affected by a serious road incident as a witness or a victim)
