Road safety

Road safety education and training

Parents, schools and children

We provide a range of road safety education and training for young people through children's centres and schools.

Children 16 plus

We work with partners such as Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service to deliver driving awareness presentations for children over 16 on the importance on safe driving.

If you have a child 16 or over and want some hints and tips on how to make them more aware, visit the Think Road Safety website.

Older people

We work with Liverpool Public Health and Age UK to deliver workshops aimed at older road users to raise awareness of the risks this group face. These are delivered across a number of community venues. To find out more contact us.

Want to help us?

We are always looking for volunteers to help us train children and our staff will provide all volunteers with appropriate support and training.

If you are interested or would like to find out more, get in touch.

Road safety initiatives and strategies

Liverpool's 20 effect

From 2012 to 2015 we made all identified residential roads in Liverpool 20mph to improve road safety and help to increase residents cycling and walking.

Some roads were not included in the scheme, including A- and B-roads, roads that were not appropriate and roads that were already 20mph with traffic calming.

Residents in the areas affected were consulted before the scheme started through letter drops, engagement days and campaigns.

The scheme cost £1.65m over 4 years and was part funded through Liverpool City Council and the Liverpool Public Health.

If you want to find out more about what we are doing to improve road safety in Liverpool, visit the council information section.
