It was a busy week for Rhondda Cynon Taf's Road Safety Team with a string of events and activities taking place across the borough to promote Road Safety Week.
The team worked in partnership with Dan Brain from Halfords to carry out child car seat checks at Asda in Aberdare and to give help and advice on ways to stay safe. They also had the help of the Junior Road Safety Officers from Cwmdar Primary School in Aberdare as well as another special visit 'Zarla the Zebra' the road safety mascot. Several parents took up the opportunity to have their child's car seat checked to ensure they were as safe as possible whilst travelling in the vehicle.
The Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs) in RCT were very busy carrying out their own tasks for Road Safety Week. JRSO's at YGG Llyn-Y-Forwyn, Our Ladys RC, Tylorstown and Penygraig Junior School presented 'Be Bright Be Seen' assemblies as well as acting out a short play on the importance of wearing bright clothing near the road particularly when its dark. Treorchy Primary JRSO's also designed their own PowerPoint on road safety and presented it to the whole school. JRSO's at Llwynypia Primary carried out a parking operation along with RCT Road Safety Officers and the Civil Enforcement Officers to prevent parents from parking on the yellow zig-zag lines.
