Many parents are in a difficult situation when it comes to letting their kids walk or cycle, often forced to weigh up the benefits of their kids being active and getting out and about with the risk of their child being knocked down and hurt.
We need to make it easier for them by making roads safer for children and people of all ages, to help kids have the fun, active childhood they deserve - and a proven way to do this is to reduce traffic speeds.

We're appealing to drivers to listen to the thousands of kids marching today, and take the simple step of slowing down to 20mph or less around homes, schools and shops. It's a case of putting kids before getting there a few minutes faster.
We're also urging government - and more local authorities in Wales - to work towards 20mph being the norm across all our communities, to help kids get walking without being put in danger.
