Road Safety - colouring posters

While school is out and young students are at home, Transport Malta has prepared some road safety material for them. The parents can download a series of eight posters for the kids to colour them in.

Each poster has a road safety message. A simple message to help pedestrians be safer on the road. The material could also help teachers use the material to broach the topic of road safety in their sessions.

Transport Malta chose the following topics and created these posters. Each can be downloaded in outline format for the kids to colour them in.
