DriveTech is supporting Road Safety Week 19-25 November
DriveTech is excited to be supporting Road Safety Week organised by Brake, so look out for our tips and advisories throughout the week to help you stay safe and to work towards reducing deaths and serious injuries on our roads.
The whole idea of Road Safety Week is to raise awareness and encourage you to share the messages with your own business driving communities.
You can even enter a prize draw on our website during Road Safety Week to win a business driver safety training prize.
There are still over 1790 deaths on UK roads per year (DfT figures for 2017 published in September 2018) and this number has effectively remained static for a few too many years now.
We all need to work hard to bring road deaths and serious injuries down. This is good for everyone, whether you're running a business needing to reduce risk exposure and costs, and protect your driving workforce, or just if you want to safeguard family, friends and other loved ones from the tragedy of avoidable collisions and mistakes.
The core theme for this year is vulnerable road users and most notably, cyclists, so be 'BikeSmart'. Sadly more than 100 cyclists die on Britain’s roads a year – around 6% of all road deaths.
As a leading occupational driver risk management provider and the UKs largest provider of speed awareness courses, on behalf of 12 police forces and Transport for London, we are committed to best practice in road safety.
As well as BikeSmart, advice for cyclists and a wealth of other support material is available on the Brake Road Safety Week website
. Look out for our daily tips throughout the week - here on our website and on our social media channels - which will help all road users to improve their awareness of others, be more aware of the prevailing road conditions and generally drive better, in a safe and sensible manner.
Please join DriveTech as well as the many other active participants and support Road Safety Week across your organisation too. Find out more here and don’t forget the prize draw too, available to enter with full details on the website during Road Safety Week , 19-25 November 2018.
