The annual Junior Road Safety Officer awards took place recently at Ayr Town Hall and it was the perfect opportunity for the Ayrshire Roads Alliance’s Road Safety Team to congratulate all the JRSO’s and their co-ordinators.
Throughout the year JRSO’s, who were selected from Primary 6 classes across South Ayrshire last August, have been running campaigns to improve road safety around their schools and raise awareness of road safety issues among their peers.
There were four awards categories at the special ceremony.

David Burns, Executive Manager, People’s Directorate, South Ayrshire Council congratulated all of the JRSO’s and presented prizes to the winners.

Road safety is such an important issue, and the children have been inspirational in raising awareness both with their fellow pupils and the wider community. I would like to congratulate the winners and everyone that took part.”
