Children of all ages get excited when playing sport and can act unpredictably.
That is why it is important that parents act responsibly and obey road rules and parking restrictions when parking or dropping off kids at sporting fields.
When you are near a sporting field, it is a good rule of thumb to follow the same kind of road rules you would obey around schools, such as:
Don’t risk the lives and well-being of our kids for the sake of convenience or a few minutes of walking.
The Safety DoorChildren should always use the vehicle ‘Safety Door’. The Safety Door is the rear door, closest to the kerb, footpath or gutter and away from the road. Get kids in the habit of getting in and out of the car using this door with a Safety Door sticker from the RMS.
