Hello, hello! Today I’m going to talk about
Road safety is very important. Nearly everyday you are on the road. The grade fours at the school I go to do Bike Ed this term. It is all about learning how to ride your bike safely on the road and even the footpath (sidewalk for some people). It is very important to learn these rules so when you get older you know how to be safe.
A lady from the RACV (Royal Automobile Club Victoria) came to the grade fours at the school I go to. She told us all the road safety rules, well at least most of them. It was really interesting to find out all of these rules.
I am going to tell you a few of them she told us:
- Always wear a helmet because if you are wearing a helmet you have two things protecting your brain. If you don’t have your helmet on, that’s bad. Your brain is the only thing that can’t heal in your body.
- Wear bright coloured clothes when you are riding in the dark.
- Wear runners. You wouldn’t see someone in high heels riding their bikes, would you?
- Ride with a parent or a parent near you until you are twelve.
- Wear a well fitted helmet
- Never wear any type of hat under your helmet, your helmet could slide off when you are riding.
Here is a picture of my brother and I on our bikes when we were younger (my brother had my old bike):
