Trucks and Child Safety (T.A.C.S)

13 Jul 2018
Location: West Monkton Primary School
Time: 09:00:00 - 15:00:00

Run by national haulage companies, the TACS scheme brings a large truck into school and educates children about the danger of trucks and road safety.

• What exactly the driver can or cannot see in the mirrors.
• Make the children aware of the truck’s dimensions.
• Just how loud is the engine?
• What and where are the vehicle’s blind spots?
• How difficult is it for a driver, while inside the cab, to hear a
child shouting?
• What distance is needed on the nearside when a vehicle is
turning left at a junction?
• Children learn how to walk safely around the vehicle and where
to stand on the pavement.
• What should you do if a football runs under a truck?

For more information, and to request a TACS visit to your school, call Somerset Road Safety on 01823 423430 or email
