Free Road Safety App Klang

Child pedestrian casualties in Scotland in 2015 totalled 450 with injuries commonly resulting when children cross the roads close to home or school.  Children aged 8-11 have been identified as one of the most vulnerable pedestrian groups.  Child pedestrian casualties can be reduced if we can educate them about road safety.

The free road safety app Klang: The Road Home from the Scottish Government is aimed at 8-11 year olds and uses gaming technology to educate children about important road safety messages in a fun way. Go to the Klang website to find out more.
