The RAC aims to equip every member of The Scout Association with the knowledge and skills to keep them safe on our roads and to develop as responsible road users. RAC partner the Cub Road safety Activity Badge and have produced activities and resources to support the badge as well as taking patrols out to Groups around the country and running Road Safety Awareness Champions workshops. The RAC is committed to improving road safety and reducing the number of children and young people injured or killed on our roads each year.

Patrol visits from RAC and Horace

The RAC had an amazing response from Scout groups requesting a visit from their patrols and mascot Horace with over 200 requests in the first few weeks of the partnership. They have so far committed to visiting over 100 groups in 2016 to help deliver road safety workshops, with Horace keen to join as many of these as possible. 

Every Cub pack completing the Road Safety Champions workshop will receive a plaque for their meeting place, the chance to name a local RAC patrol van and their photo featured on the RAC Road Safety Awareness Champions hall of fame. 2,000 Horace Road Safety Awareness Kit Bags will also be given away to the first 50 Cub packs who receive a visit.

RAC hope to be able to visit more Groups in the future so watch this space for more information on how to book.

Be prepared for winter on the roads

As the UK’s most experienced motoring organisation the RAC can give us great advice on how we can be prepared for the worst this winter on the roads. The RAC's 1,500 patrols will be busy 24/7 rescuing unfortunate motorists who break down as the cold weather takes its toll. But by following their straight forward tips and advice on how you can #winterproof your car you can reduce the risk of breaking down. They also have some great advice on driving safely in extreme weather conditions including high winds, heavy rain, fog, ice and snow.
