Kids being driven around too much

Are you scared of crossing the road?

Road safety experts think kids are getting driven around so much they aren't learning about dangers on the roads.

Official figures from the government show that pupils starting secondary school are more likely to be in an accident than primary school kids.

A report by the charity Living Streets says this is because younger kids aren't allowed to walk to school.

Then, when older kids do start walking, they don't know about the dangers.
