Seen and safe Skyla Natalie 170519 More than 8,000 children
are safer on our roads thanks to the Southland Seen and Safe
road safety programme, which celebrated 10 years last week. Developed by Plunket Injury Prevention Manager Kathryn
Impelmans and supported by organisations such as Road Safety
Southland, Wensley’s Cycles and The Warehouse, the
Southland Seen and Safe programme aims to reduce fatalities
and injuries by talking to families with children under the
age of 5 about road safety. “We are so grateful to these organisations who work with
us to ensure our young people are visible on our roads,”
says Ms Impelmans.
