Keeping Children Safe in Traffic

An OECD Working Group comprised of road safety experts has produced the present study, which explores children’s characteristics, mobility needs and travel patterns, as well as design factors that affect children’s safety in transport.

The study examines various strategies for keeping children safe in the road environment and discusses their safe mobility in the context of other social objectives, including road safety, infrastructure provision and design and accessibility.

The information and recommendations presented are geared to policy makers, transport planners, regulators and strategists. The overall aim is to continue the progress achieved in reducing children’s road-related injuries and fatalities.
