However you travel, take responsibility for your own safety. Don’t let your phone, games or music (or even your friends!) distract you from what’s going on around you.

When it comes to so-called accidental deaths, such as fire, drowning, poisoning or  falls, traffic kills far more children and young people (excepting babies) than all of  these events combined. Four out of five deaths of 10-19 year olds (excepting deaths  from illness) are in road crashes. (see )

Do some research before a new journey – plan routes and identify places where you  might need to take extra care. Allow plenty of time to get there. If you are going by  public transport, check the times and stops carefully. Always have a back-up plan in  case there are problems.
