bbc news background For an everyday activity, travelling by road is probably the riskiest thing many of us do on a regular basis. On average, some seven people are killed every day on the roads in Great Britain. Hundreds more are injured, many of them seriously, often

with life In the past 10 years, the death toll has amounted to 32,298. As such changing road crashes are the largest single cause of accidental death for consequences. 02/10/2011 JAH people aged between 5 and 35 years. CRASH TEST VIDEOS

Cross curricular Experiences and Outcomes I know and can demonstrate how to travel safely. Health and well being (HWB) 218a, 3-18a,4-18a. I am learning to assess and manage risk, to protect myself and others, and to reduce the potential harm where possible. HWB 2-16a, 3-16a, 4-16a. 02/10/2011 JAH

The curriculum for excellence requires all teachers to promote numeracy and one of the experiences and outcomes identified is that the pupils learning should enable them to: Interpret numerical information appropriately and use it to draw conclusions, assess risk, make reasoned evaluations and informed decisions. 02/10/2011 JAH

All teachers are teachers of literacy. Pupils could be asked their opinion on 20 mph speed limits I can persuade, argue, explore issues or express an opinion using relevant supporting detail and or evidence. LIT 329a When listening and talking with others for different purposes, I can: communicate information, ideas or opinions explain processes, concepts or ideas identify issues raised, 02/10/2011 JAH

What makes a car safe? Why are some cars better in crashes than others? What happens during a crash? Is this car safe? JAH Making a car safe

Depends on driver education and attitude road design car maintenance car construction 02/10/2011 JAH Driver education 30% of accidents involve a driver under the age of 21.

8% of driving licences are held by drivers under 21. One in three drivers will have an accident by the time they reach 21. Boys under 21 are twice as likely to be involved in an accident. 02/10/2011 JAH Hyperlink to video if clip doesn't work 02/10/2011

JAH Road Design New roads are subject to strict design standards covering gradients, radius of curvature of bends etc. Although sometimes it can be a bit confusing! 02/10/2011

Road Design Roadside furniture is being replaced with crushable structures to minimise vehicle intrusion in a crash. 02/10/2011 JAH

Car Maintenance Accident prevention is the best way of protecting people in cars. Proper maintenance of safety systems - brakes, lights, steering, suspension and tyres - is essential to preventing accidents. Very few accidents are attributed to mechanical failure. 02/10/2011 JAH

JAH INVESTIGATIONS Choose one of the investigations to choose from or design your own Friction and the driving surface, Car tyre design, Brakes how to make them better, Being a crash test dummy, Seatbelts are they worth it? Run offs what should they be made of? How and why lorry brakes smell at the bottom of a slope (height and speed)


Look at Road safety Campaigns, stopping distance, reaction timers, car accidents. Discuss how cars can be designed to be safe. Where can improvements be made? 02/10/2011 JAH 02/10/2011 JAH

02/10/2011 JAH DISCUSSION- Choose one of the topics to discuss Should the speed limit on motorways be increased? What should be the punishment for drink drivers? The age for people to learn to drive should be increased/ decreased. The cost for Fuel in rural areas should be

reduced We should learn to drive at school Driving lessons should be free and compulsory The insurance for young drivers is too expensive All cars in Scotland should have snow tyres in 02/10/2011 JAH winter VIDEOS Check out 1. THE COLLISIONS VIDEO on CLICKVIEW
