Jumicar is all about giving children a fun and practical experience to learn about the roads. During the sessions the young people will gain road awareness skills, learn the importance of obeying safety rules and become aware of the various hazards presented by being in a vehicle or on the roadside.

Children - pedestrians

The facts

  • In 2007 on average 37 children under 16 were killed or seriously injured every week on roads in Great Britain
  • In 2009 The number of children killed or seriously injured in the UK on our roads was 2,671  
  • Most children under 9 can't judge how fast vehicles are going or how far away they are
  • The risk of a child pedestrian being involved in a road accident rises when they start school and then rises again when children start secondary school

Jumicar is a unique activity that teaches road awareness skills in a practical  and enjoyable way which can be brought to your school and taught to your pupils.

 

Jumicar offers a fun, exciting, practical and educational experience for any child.


We use junior sized cars on a mini road circuit complete with road signs and working traffic lights, road safety role playing activities and road safety work sheets during the day.

Safety is paramount at all times, with all children required to wear a crash helmet and seat belts. N.B. - we are proud to have a 100% safety record in the eight years that we have been running and have £5m of public liability insurance for your peace of mind.

 

During a typical Jumicar session, your pupils will learn:

How a good passenger can improve a driver's skills behind the wheel


The importance of wearing a seat belt and the consequences of not wearing one


How to behave as a pedestrian including where it is safe to cross the road, the Green Cross Code, discussing risks and avoiding distractions whilst crossing.


Reaction times of drivers


Stopping distances and braking distances of vehicles


Recognising and understanding Road Signs


Wearing bright clothing at night and risks if not


Jumicar makes a real difference to the safety of your pupils  and parents/carers won't be able to thank you enough for it.
