Schoolchildren to target parents who park on 'keep clear' markings outside schools
Creating safer and greener roads outside schools is the job being tasked to Hackney’s newest batch of Junior Road Safety Officers.
Children from 24 schools across the borough have been chosen by Hackney Council to act as road safety champions to their peers for this academic year, following a training morning in Hackney Museum.
The Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSO) will also promote general road safety messages as well as encourage walking and cycling to and from school by speaking to their schoolmates in assemblies, organising competitions, and maintaining notice boards of information leaflets and posters.
Junior Road Safety Officers play a vital role in tackling road safety issues in and around the grounds of their schools. We hope motorists will take heed of the safety messages being asked of them and help make the roads cleaner, greener and safer for all.
