Children from a local school joined over 10,000 other children across the UK in a march to raise awareness of the dangers of traffic.
The pupils from Moulton Chapel Primary School marched from their school gates, around the area surrounding the school as part of a giant walking bus, which is an annual national event organised by road safety charity, Brake and webuyanycar.com. This year, over 600 schools joined in the march which allows children to learn about road safety, traffic pollution and transport choices. The march also raises funds for Brake’s work to improve road safety and provide support services for families bereaved and injured by road crashes. A spokesperson from the school said: “The children took part in this giant march for a giant reason: to say no to driving fast and yes to walking. “Nationally, half of all school kids are driven to school, increasing pollution and danger, and affecting health.” The school says “slow down, kids about” and wants drivers to abide by the 30mph speed limit outside the school.
