Fire crews to spread the word

6 June 2012

Story from Road Safety GB.

Fire crews will engage with the public across Britain to pass on safety messages as part of the Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA) National Road Safety Day on 6 July.

Fire and Rescue Services across the country will lend their support to convey road safety messages at motorway service stations, car parks and petrol stations. The key theme for the event is “Only a fool breaks the two-second rule”.

Dave Etheridge, CFOA lead for road safety, said “We want to encourage all Fire and Rescue Services to get involved in talking to the public on CFOA National Road Safety Day.

“Too many people drive far too close to the car in front and don’t allow enough time to brake safely. A recent Brake and Direct Line survey discovered that 53% of those questioned admit to breaking the two-second rule on motorways. Don’t forget to keep your distance and drive according to the weather conditions.”
