Drive Less Live More
This week is National Road Safety Week and Nockolds Solicitors’ Personal Injury Team is delighted to be supporting BRAKE, the national road safety charity, to raise awareness about protecting vulnerable road users. The theme of this year’s Road Safety week is ‘drive less, live more’.
A shocking 200 pedestrians and cyclists are killed or injured every day on roads in the UK. As it gets darker earlier in the coming winter months, children and cyclists are even more vulnerable.
BRAKE exists to stop the needless deaths and serious injuries that happen on roads every day, make streets and communities safer for everyone, and care for families bereaved and injured in road crashes. BRAKE promotes road safety awareness, safe and sustainable road use and effective road safety policies.
We are encouraging everyone to consider how they use roads and, if they can, ditch some vehicle mileage and walk, cycle or use public transport where possible instead. Consider how much money you’ll save, how many calories you’ll burn and how much pollution you won’t create!
