school traffic update – follow the one way system

Children are vulnerable road users. Their physical size and developmental limitations place them at risk in the traffic environment.

Drivers are less likely to be able to see a small child and it is harder for children to see oncoming traffic. Their lack of road experience means it is difficult for children to judge dangerous situations. Children’s safety to and from school is an important road safety issue.

In an effort to reduce the potential risks to children our school is attempting to make our afternoon collection time more organised and safe for all. Our traffic plan  has been prepared in consultation with parents and the Board of Management. A copy of this plan was issued to all parents.

There has been a big improvement in our traffic in the afternoon but we all need to really focus on following our one way system in the car park. If we can achieve this we will increase the safety levels which I am sure everybody wants.
