Passenger Safety Key Stage 3

back to all products


Injuries and deaths from road traffic collisions devastate lives. Not just those of the victims, but of their families and friends too. By changing the way young people behave as passengers in cars, “#YOLO” encourages students to recognise risks and take responsibility for their actions.

Students explore the consequences of a road traffic tragedy. They see how lives and relationships are torn apart as family and friends struggle to cope with the aftermath. They are encouraged to examine their own attitudes and behaviours and how this would impact on people they care about the most.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the effect their attitude and behaviour has on a driver, their safety and the safety of those around them
  • Greater knowledge of the consequences of anti-social driving
  • Understand the importance of wearing a seatbelt at all times within in a car
  • Develop strategies for managing their own behavior and understand you are never ‘just a passenger’ - you can act to keep yourself safe
  • Equip students with coping strategies to become a powerful and responsible passenger
