Road Safety Campaign in Clydebank

November 23, 2016 by  

As we near the middle of Road Safety Week, drivers (and passengers) in Clydebank are being urged to take the brake pledge to make our roads safer.

Every day in the UK, five people die on roads and about 60 more are seriously injured, and this obviously can cause a needless loss of life and inflicting terrible suffering.  Road safety affects everyone, not just drivers and people in cars.  It affects whether children can go to the park or walk to school, elderly people can get to the shops, people can take up cycling to get to work or get fit, and families feel safe to get around their neighbourhoods.

For some people, it changes everything. Road crashes and casualties end lives too soon, rip families apart, leave communities reeling in shock and victims feeling alone and without hope.  Ideally with campaigns like these will help reduce those awful statistics to as close to zero as possible.  But not only will road safety lead to less accidents but the knock on effect is that people can get around in ways that are safe, sustainable, healthy and enjoyable – great news for the climate and health.

The pledge that drivers and passengers are being askedto sign up for is that they will start off by going slow, by being sober, by using and securing seatbelts, by staying off mobile phones and maintaining sharp eyesight.  All very simple things but lifechangers when enacted.

Campaigns like this can benefit by using local printers to target an area with leaflet and flyers outlining the simple tasks needing to be carried out to make our roads safer.
