Road Safety Week highlights dangers of accidents

From the 19th-25th November, an annual initiative from a road safety charity was launched to try and raise awareness of safe driving and other issues regarding safety for pedestrians and motorists alike.

Road Safety Week, a project launched by Brake, the road safety charity has been held every year with the help of governmental organisations and sponsors, and is designed to give drivers and non-drivers tips on how to stay safe on the road and avoid being injured in serious accidents.

This year’s Road Safety Week saw the organisers work with schoolchildren and drivers, stressing the importance of driving more slowly in urban areas near schools. Posters and banners highlighting the initiative were displayed across the UK by supporters and well-wishers, while volunteers went to schools and community centres talking about how, by changing their driving habits, they can ensure they don’t get caught up in accidents or become injured.

Among the numerous events organised at part of Road Safety Week include talks and workshops, while different themes were focused on such as drink driving and drug driving. Road safety has improved significantly over the years, and Road Safety Week, with backing from the government has played a big part in that.

However, there are still hazards out there on the road that motorists and pedestrians may find impossible to avoid, no matter how careful they are. Wet weather, the odd reckless driver and even faulty vehicles can cause accidents, so it’s important to know what to do in the event of an accident.
