In an emergency always call 999

Road and cycle safety talk for youngsters in Grindleford

Posted on 3rd April 2014

An officer from Bradwell Safer Neighbourhood Team headed out on the road to speak to youngsters in Grindleford about the importance of road safety.

PCSO Anthony Boswell from the policing team spoke to the group at Grindleford Youth Club about staying safe on the roads during the visit on Wednesday, March 19.  

The officer spoke to the group to highlight the issue of road safety and the importance of being seen when out on the road in order to stay safe.

The talk follows as the policing team came across a number of children when out on patrols that were not wearing a helmet, had no lights on their bikes and were mainly wearing dark clothing.

PCSO Anthony Boswell from the Bradwell Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “Visits like this are a great opportunity for us to head out into the community to speak to youths about road and cycle safety.

“I spoke to the group about the road safety message, to be bright, be seen and be safe and how wearing reflective clothing and lights on a bike can help them to stand out to motorists when out after dark.”
