Watch the kids getting animated about road safety

School children are being encouraged to use animation to spread the road safety message in a national competition.

Aardman Animation is asking kids to create their own short animated films to communicate key road safety messages to their fellow students.

They've teamed up with Think! from the Department of Transport and the RAC.

Children taking part are researching into important road safety issues in their local community and then using these to make a short animated film.
