Everyone is a road user, written by Pam Hook, encourages primary and intermediate school students to act as citizens, by:

  • finding aspects of local journeys to focus on to support road users in their community
  • listening to different perspectives about their identified aspects of their inquiry
  • seeking community-based solutions to help road users experience safer journeys
  • becoming knowledge producers for their local communities – collecting and creating stories about safer journeys for pedestrians, cyclists and passengers.
