Road Safety

Road Safety education and training

The County Council provides education and training resources for people who live and work in Hampshire.

We aim to make the roads safer for everyone to use and run campaigns throughout the year to highlight the importance of road safety, focusing on drivers, riders, cyclists and pedestrians.

We have a team of specialists, including road safety officers, and work in partnership with other organisations including the police, the fire and rescue service, the NHS and other local authorities.

Safe drive stay alive

SDSA poster

Every year in Hampshire and Thames Valley dozens of teenagers and young people are killed or seriously injured on our roads.

Safe Drive Stay Alive is a reaction to this. Fire and Rescue, the NHS, South Central Ambulance Service, nine authorities and the Police have come together to produce a hard-hitting event watched by thousands of students.

The production revolves around a film about a group of friends going out, but things take a turn for the worse when the driver of the car they are travelling in gets distracted and they collide.

As the story progresses, the film stops at various points and members of the emergency services and the public walk on stage to talk about their experience of collisions.

Please see below for dates and venues of Safe Drive Stay Alive events in your local area.

  • Monday 16 November, Tuesday 17 November and Wednesday 25 November – The Hexagon, Reading

  • Wed 18 November – Kings Community Church, Southampton

  • Tuesday 24 November – The Anvil, Basingstoke

Both regulations set out the minimum standards for design, durability and crash safety of a child car seat.
