Hector's road safety message  

Hector's road safety song 'Stop, look, listen, think' is central to the road safety message he teaches children.

Stop – stop at the kerb. Make sure it is safe to cross
Look – look to your right and then to the left. Can you see any traffic?
Listen – listen carefully with your ears. Can you hear any traffic?
Think – think with your brain. Is it safe to cross?
Walk – walk straight across. Don't run. Keep looking and listening for traffic as you cross.
