Parents in the Scottish Borders are being given advice on how to properly strap children into car seats.
Clinics have been set up in Peebles and Dumfries this week to make sure mums and dads know how to fit seats correctly to keep youngsters safe.
Twenty-five "deserving" people from the Scottish Borders have won tickets to ride on one of the first trains of the new Borders Railway.
Residents had been asked to nominate local people, who they felt deserved a ticket because of, for example, their community work.
All of the winners will be presented with their Golden Tickets on Saturday 5 September - the day before the new Borders Railway opens to the public.
The winners are:
- Chirnside - Karen Wallace
- Darnick - Karen Smith
- Earlston - Judith Burton, Steven Reid
- Galashiels - Annika Hynes, Gladys Mein, Robert Hogarth, Tomasz Ryniecki, Lisa Scott & Nicky Jack
- Hawick - Kaymarie Hughes, Logan Kennedy, Paula Smith, Sheila Jackson, Warren Law
- Kelso - David Quarrie
- Newtown St Boswells - Shona Pringle
- Peebles - John Swanson, Julie Simpson
- Selkirk - Jan Allison, Teresa Colbert
- St Boswells - Carla How, Helen Kirkland
- Tweedbank - Lyn Riley, Moira Mitchell
- West Linton - Scott Murray
We have had a tremendous response to the Golden Ticket competition, and the selection panel had to make some difficult decisions to come up with the final list.
I look forward to welcoming all Golden Ticket recipients onto the trains on 5 September, which is going to be a historic and exciting day.”
Tickets for the Borders Railway are now on sale at the correct price... after a technical glitch earlier this week.
The fault prevented people being able to book ahead for when the line opens in September.
ScotRail said it was due to a problem with The Trainline website.
