Learning about Traffic Rules @ The Road Safety Community Park

"Move!" The children asked DaDi to start the car at the junction. They recognised that the traffic light was green, however, they were not aware that we were going to turn right.

"We are going to turn right, we have to give way to cars from the opposite direction." DaDi explained.

To let the children learn about traffic rules, we brought them to Road Safety Park, located at East Coast Park. They had an experience of being the driver, and learnt to observe the traffic rules!



The children learnt about traffic light and the traffic signs. Oh, the traffic lights were not functioning, so I had to say, "It is green light now! It is turning yellow! It is red light now!"



They had to fill petrol for their... er... bicycles! The petrol filling nozzle was quite heavy!



They remembered MaMi said that cars need to "see doctor for check-up"!



Tips for bringing children to The Road Safety Community Park:
  • Bring hats / caps! And insect repellent!
  • There are big ants at the "Inspection Centre" (the photo above), so be careful!
  • Do look out for your children as there are some children who do not "drive" safely. 
  • It is very slippery after the rain, so remind your children to "drive" slowly.

  2. I brought my kids there twice when they were younger. It is a nice place to teach children traffic rules. A pity that it's a little run down . :(

  4. This reminds me of the time I was there with my schoolmates. Missed out on getting a medal or something after stepping on the grass to ask a NPCC cadet for directions.

  7. When I brought my kids to the Road Safety Park, the only thing they were interested in was topping up their bicycle / scooter with petrol!! LOL!! The petrol thingy was pretty realistic.

  9. I remember going to the Road Safety Park when I was in Primary School! We all so loved it but the time there was always very short! We either got to be Pedestrains or Drivers, not both :( Didn't know that it is now opened to public and is still so well maintained!

    1. I guess the children would "fight" to be the drivers?
