Glasgow City Council's Road Safety Unit has partnered with Glasgow City Parents Group and Police Scotland to create a social media campaign with an aim to make school road safety messages a more prominent and continuous feature within schools.
We aim for our messages to be acknowledged, supported and promoted by schools and Parent Councils so that these messages are noticeable and never forgotten throughout the school community.
The campaign, titled Road Safety ABC, will feature a different road safety theme every few months to be shared through schools, Parent Councils and the partnership's social media channels, to encourage safer behaviours around Glasgow's schools. These campaigns are aimed to tackle the most problematic and dangerous behaviours witnessed outside and around schools.
Some examples of the themes already covered are:
Parking on the zig-zag markings outside schools.
Safer school journeys, encouraging active travel plus park and stride.
Be bright, be seen for darker winter months.
