This activity has been developed jointly with the Road Safety Team from Birmingham City Council Transportation Department.
It is designed to help parents teach or remind children that they need to hold onto something safe when they go out onto the pavement or road. It also reminds children that they should not let go until they are in a safe place.
The best option is to hold hands. The other ways, such as holding a pushchair or an item of clothing result in less supervision, and should be approached with care.
The parent/carer should position themselves between the child and the kerb.
