The Little Blue Dinosaur aims to ensure that students are fully engaged in our road safety education by encouraging them to explain which roadway behaviours they will actively change as a result of our school presentation.

I used to think: that road safety was very important

I used to think: you were allowed to walk on the road and not hold a parent’s hand but be very careful.
Now I know: that you have to only cross the road at a pedestrian crossing and you always have to hold a hand.
I used to think: road safety was important and that people could see me on the road.
