For educators

Free learning resources developed to teach B.C. students road safety skills and awareness.

From safely crossing the street, to signaling while riding a bicycle, to paying attention while behind the wheel, road safety is important for all British Columbians. As part of our commitment to promote a safe driving culture in B.C., we've developed this road safety curriculum to help teachers give children and young adults the tools they need to stay safe today and in the future.
