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.

We are also part of the Older Drivers Forum. A non-profit organisation aimed at keeping mature motorists on the road safely for longer.

i-Size is the new European standard for child car seats.
Since 9 July 2013 the first phase of i-Size has run alongside the existing regulation, ECE R44/04.
Both regulations set out the minimum standards for design, durability and crash safety of a child car seat.
