Submitted by by Gina on

The Isle of Man Road Safety partnership (Isle of Man Constabulary, Road Safety Unit & Vehicle Testing Centre) will visit primary schools throughout the island this week to advise motorists about the correct use of Child seats & safety restraints.

This will be from Monday 5th November until Thursday 8th November at start of school and afterwards. Members of the partnership will be outside schools during this time to make sure safe practices are adhered to. 

There are some occasions when drivers are transporting children to school without suitable seat belts or restraint systems within the vehicle. Our aim is to educate drivers and the children in respect of the legislation to keep all road users as safe as possible.

There motto for all drivers is SAFELY STOW YOUR PRECIOUS CARGO.
