That this House notes that road accidents are the leading cause of death in school age children; notes that a wide range of resource material is available to teachers, yet many secondary schools have no policy on the teaching of road safety and up to two thirds of primary schools have no structured road safety education programme; welcomes the work on guidelines on good practice in road safety education undertaken by the Department of Transport; notes the target set in the Department of Health's Health of the Nation programme for the reduction in the death rate of children; and calls on Her Majesty's Government to provide a specific allocation of financial resources for the training of teachers in road safety, to include child casualty reduction and the reduction of danger at source as stated aims in the programmes of preventive health and safety education established by the Department of Education and the Scottish and Welsh Offices, and to place a general duty on all schools to provide road safety education.
