Road Safety Week 2020

Hilary Meredith Solicitors fully supports Road Safety Week, which runs from November 16th to November 22nd.
Road Safety Week, organised by ‘Brake’, a road safety charity, is an annual event and the biggest road safety awareness event in the UK.
During Road Safety Week, thousands of organisations, schools and communities take part, with road safety demonstrations, events, awareness video screenings, talks and more.
Schools can take advantage of road safety week to teach children about the highway code for example, or safety when crossing roads, cycling proficiency tests, and the importance of cycle helmets and high visibility when cycling,
Riding Stables can hold safety talks for riders who ride on the road, and members of the public can be reached through press, media, and public events that remind them of safe driving techniques, statistics relating to bad driving and road accidents, use of mobile phones at the wheel, and more.
The event has great scope to reach many people across the nation and remind them of road safety, thus potentially preventing many accidents.
