Playing it Safe: Road Safety is a fun way of learning about staying safe on the roads.
Choose your character and then look after them as they explore the world.
Help them choose the right clothes and accessories to stay safe and choose the right place and time to get them across the road in one piece.
You can also test your knowledge in a beat the clock quiz and try the addictive traffic lights game to help you learn the light sequence.
There are tips and advice for parents to make sure the kids make the connection to real life and the real-life dangers.

Ratings and Reviews
Not impressed by this. Cannot see how the crossing the road game will reflect real life. Mostly is health and safety messages going a bit far (do you REALLY recommend wearing elbow pads to catch a bus?) in a politically correct manner that has probably cost a fair amount to produce, and will waste teachers, public sector and pupils time in using. It does look quite professionally done, so well done to the app programmers - the one star is for you x
