Road Safety Week 2016

It’s Road Safety Week again, and this year’s vision from charity Brake is: a world where streets are pleasant, unpolluted, and safe for everyone to use freely.

This year, Brake are asking people to make the Six Elements #BrakePledge.

Five people are killed every single day by something we already know how to cure. Our roads are dangerous places, where hundreds of deaths and serious injuries take place every week.

But by changing our driving behaviour, we can help to make our villages, towns and cities safer places to be. Every action that we take, as a driver or as a passenger, can change the outcome of a journey and the future of a family.

Over the years, we’ve had several blogs dedicated to road safety for our professional driver clients – read our handy guides and tips here:
