Transport-related injuries are a leading cause of death in children under 14 in Australia. The NSW Road Safety Plan 2021 commits to ongoing road safety education from early childhood through schooling. An enduring partnership with Transport for NSW (TfNSW) enables Kids and Traffic to work with early childhood organisations to support children, families and communities to improve safety outcomes. An online resource, Safe Journeys Safe Communities, showcases Kids and Traffic community-focused road safety collaborations. Kids and Traffic resources and professional learning workshops inspire early childhood organisations to address local road safety issues to reduce road trauma.
