January’s road safety campaign

During January 2012, Scottish Borders Road Policing Officers, alongside the region’s locality integration officers will be in and around Berwickshire schools to carry out checks, and to offer advice and guidance about school traansport .

The road safety checks will include the use of child seats, booster seats, seatbelt compliance, safe routes to schools and parking amongst other issues.

Running in conjunction with this will be an initiative to encourage and educate school children about the importance of cycle helmets and adequate lighting in good working order on bicycles which are essential at this time of year.
