In my role as both a mother and school governor, not to mention my employment as a personal injury lawyer, my mind immediately turned to the suitability of potential candidates. Funnily enough, having logged onto my computer at work, a Google Alert came through reference Hampshire County Council's "StreetSense" scheme.  A "20 is Plenty" campaign had been successfully run outside primary schools which led to monitoring statistics outside secondary schools.  I was shocked to read that in about 75% of cases accidents were due to students' own inattention.  I say I was shocked, but not surprised.  My youngest son is 15 and I have to say that I sometimes wish I was on his planet!

"StreetSense" is aimed at children, teachers, parents and drivers.  It may well reiterate that which is already known, but in my opinion it is an excellent idea.  If only one life is saved, it will be worth it.
