Keeping Children at Play, at play.
As the weather starts to get warmer and the school holidays approach, parents and residents association committees should be aware of the increased risk of accidents involving children playing outside. One way to mitigate this risk is by erecting road safety signs to remind motorists to slow down and be aware of children at play. In this blog post, we will explore the reasons why it is important to erect road safety signs, the different types of signs available from www.SignsOnline.ie, and how you can order signs for your community.
Why Erect Road Safety Signs?
Children are more likely to play outside during the holidays, which means there is an increased risk of accidents on the roads. According to a report by the Road Safety Authority in Ireland, children aged 5-14 are particularly vulnerable to road accidents, with most accidents occurring during the summer months and on Fridays and Saturdays. Children are also more likely to be involved in accidents during the hours of 3pm to 6pm when they are on their way home from school or playing outside.
Road safety signs can act as a visual cue to drivers that they need to take extra care when driving in residential areas. This can help reduce the number of accidents and injuries caused by careless or distracted driving. Signs that remind motorists to slow down, be aware of children at play, and be mindful of pedestrian crossings can be particularly effective in promoting road safety in residential areas.
