What's really important in road traffic? How can you support your children? This is where you can find tips – counted on the fingers of one hand – that help your children to behave correctly in various road traffic situations.
In these sections we cover topics relating to road safety. Our practical tips offer support e.g. when cycling, in choosing the right clothing, in winter or when taking a bus. All in compact, easily remembered form.
The more independent schoolchildren become, the more they go their own way. One obvious sign of growing up is when they take the school bus unaccompanied by an adult. But instead of your protection, they now have the help of our 5 tips.
Either because of the weather, the time of day or the season – when it gets dark, we need to be all the more careful in road traffic. You can find out here how we should behave, and what your child should pay particular attention to.
Road traffic is full of stimuli which the practiced eye can recognise, process and correctly evaluate. Children in particular need to acquire this capability. Our Module 1 "Seeing and being seen" trains the perceptive abilities of children. (Only available in German)
It is most important for children to respond proactively to critical situations in road traffic. This is why our Module 2 "Crossing the road" trains their attentiveness. The download is particularly suitable for teaching children in the second primary school class.
Children are unable to transfer the experience they gain as pedestrians directly to a bicycle. With practice and training they can progress to become independent and safe cyclists. Our Module 3 covers topics relating to bicycles, and is especially suitable for schoolchildren in years three and four. (Only available in German)
Controlled interaction with others is decisive in road traffic. Children can endanger this with impulsive reactions. Our Module 4 trains them to give consideration to other road users, and is especially suitable for children in the years three and four at primary school.(Only available in German)
Many children make their own way to school by bus, bicycle or on foot. Our module prepares them for this with exercises, games and creative tasks. The module is relevant for all primary school children. We particularly recommend components 2 and 3 for children in years three and four, as these cover behaviour during bus travel.

In the preceding modules we covered behaviour in road traffic, taught necessary skills and sensitised children to their environment. In this chapter we go a step further. The children get to know the history of mobility. On this basis we encourage them to think about the future of road traffic and become active. (Only available in German)
