Transport for London – The Junior Road Safety Officer Scheme
The Junior Road Safety Officer Scheme run by Transport for London appoints children as road safety champions for their school community. The London-wide scheme is available to all boroughs. Two children aged between 9 and 11 in each school become Junior Road Safety Officers. These pupils, with the support of their teachers, play an active role in communicating key road safety messages to their school communities -through activities such as organising competitions, plays and talks. All JRSO’s were invited to an annual road safety theatre show to celebrate their work, where they reinforced road safety messages and shared best practice.
