Yesterday, 3th June 2019, we went to yet another event with the Children's Traffic School. This time for a much bigger event in Nyborg. Nyborg Municipality held UN's International Bicycle Day at Vesterhavnen, and all the city’s citizens were invited.
At the event in Nyborg, the Children's Traffic School had taken its big setup with. The traffic playground was a great place for the children. There was an inflatable bike lane, fire truck with drawing space and bouncy castle in both the police car and ambulance.
We are ready with a truck where all the children could come up and sit and hear the driver talk how to drive a truck, what challenges there are and why to take extra care of trucks in traffic. The blind spots were found, and the children learned about right-wing accidents.
The program offered everything from talk from the mayor, bicycle check with Bamse Betjent, first aid course with Miss Flora, fire fighting with the fire corps, exploration in the truck, competitions, singing and dancing.
From the Children's Traffic School, the purpose is clear - the children must be motivated to travel safely in traffic. Through play and movement, children learn about traffic rules and respect for cars as they enter the inflatable traffic school.
Road safety all year round
We have been with the Children's Traffic School on Bilka Tour this spring, and in the autumn await several visits to selected schools in the country. Teaching must prevent accidents in traffic and therefore children through traffic education can develop an understanding of where dangerous situations can occur. There is recorded video with Bamse Betjent, a DB Schenker truck and driver, who elaborates on traffic and safety rules and what reservations must be made. All teaching materials are developed for different grades
