Take Extra Care.
Story from RoadSafety GB.
The pressure being placed on the NHS by the escalating coronavirus situation is well known – and the strain is likely to get much worse in the coming weeks and months.
Last night, prime minister Boris Johnson announced more stringent measures which will reduce levels of travel – but nonetheless, some will still need their cars to travel to work and to the shops.
Meanwhile, some could also return to cycling – to fulfill their quota of one piece of exercise per day.
With that in mind, Road Safety GB has launched a new campaign, backed by a number of road safety stakeholders and the Met Police, stressing to all road users the importance of taking extra care while making essential journeys.
For those who must travel, the plea is to do everything to avoid collisions and casualties, including:
- Always drive at an appropriate speed
- Always wear a seatbelt
- Never drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Never use a mobile phone behind the wheel
