Wolferstans urges road users to ‘look out for each other’ during national Road Safety Week campaign
The Brain Injury Group and member firm Wolferstans are supporting Road Safety Week (17-23 November), a national campaign coordinated by the road safety charity Brake, encouraging all road users to look out for each other and save lives on roads.Being selfish on and around roads can quickly lead to tragedy, so car drivers are being urged to show patience, consideration and responsibility towards other road users by slowing down, taking more time at junctions and on bends and giving people room.
“Our local primary school, Compton School, is situated near a junction in a residential area which has limited parking and becomes extremely congested at school drop off and pick up times. It is, therefore, vital that the children appreciate the importance of road safety”.In 2013, five people were killed and 61 seriously injured every day on UK roads. Road Safety Week is an opportunity for everyone to spread the ‘look out for each other’ message to reduce that toll.The Brain Injury Group has provided the resources for 4000 children in 15 schools across the country to design or decorate a cycle helmet, which represents just one element of being safe on and around the roads. Thousands of other organisations, schools and community groups across the UK are also promoting life-saving messages during the UK’s biggest road safety event.
