Road Safety

The main goal is to reduce single occupancy car use, by encouraging active and sustainable travel. Safety, or perceived unsafe situations, are a significant barrier to people travelling sustainably on the school journey; therefore the Team also has the role of promoting and facilitating road safety in order to help reduce car use.

Thames Valley Police are often called upon to deal with school parking issues or to deliver road safety assemblies, but they do not always have the capacity to manage these requests.
