Making school drop off and pick up safer
Traffic and safe parking around Victorian schools are significant issues for many schools and municipalities. The amount of school traffic and the complexity of the traffic environment during school pickup and drop off times, combined with dangerous driver behaviour can put children at risk.
To address this issue, VicRoads website now include information, practical case studies and parent/carer education materials to help schools, in partnership with local councils, improve the safety of children during school drop off and pick up times.
