This week (14-20 November 2022) is Road Safety Week; a national campaign run by the charity Brake to highlight road safety topics.
This year the theme is Safe Roads for All with Brake adding “Every life on our roads matters, and every death and injury is preventable.” Road Safety Week brings together schools, businesses and communities to share important road safety messages alongside remembering those we have lost to road traffic crashes (as part of World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims on Sunday 20th November) and raising funds for Brake.
Our personal injury specialists regularly come into contact with survivors of road traffic accidents, many of them resulting in serious injuries, whether as a driver, passenger, pedestrian, cyclist or other road users. They also deal with the families of those who have unfortunately lost their lives due to road traffic accidents. We agree that the large majority of these accidents are preventable and support Brake’s call for Safer Roads for All.
By taking part in Road Safety Week, we hope to raise awareness of key areas of road safety the Government supports, including safe roads, safe vehicles and speeds, the new hierarchy of road users, and the importance of inclusivity to keep us all safe on the roads, no matter who we are, or how we travel.
Look out for our posts throughout the week, on our Stay Informed section of the website as well as across social media, with more information about how to stay safe on the road and how we can help you should you be unfortunate enough to be injured on the roads.
