Road Safety Matters

School curriculum year group imageRoad Safety Matters has been developed by the Department of Transport and Main Roads in partnership with the Department of Education and Training.

It is a comprehensive curriculum–based education package designed to stimulate discussion and understanding of road safety issues among primary and early secondary students.

Road Safety Matters meets current curriculum requirements in Queensland. It aligns with Queensland Studies Authority’s Years 1-9 Health and Physical Education Essential Learnings and provides a range of opportunities for integration with other key learning areas.

Research has shown that exposing children early to positive road safety messages, and then reinforcing these messages consistently over time, is effective in influencing attitudes and behaviours towards road safety throughout their lifetime.
