Road Safety Week

As you may be aware Road Safety is a subject matter very close to my heart. My big brother was only 6 years old when he knocked over by a car, and subsequently died.

Tomorrow would have been his birthday and so I feel it quite fitting that this week is Road Safety Week November 19th-25th.

This year they are promoting Go 20 which is reducing the speed limit to 20 mph in-built up areas.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about your brother. That must have been (and still be ) so hard for you and your family. xxx

    Road safety is so important. My son was runover last year, I’m so grateful he survived.

    My kids all joined “Traffic Club” and they are doing lots in school this week for awareness. I offered to go in to help but couldn’t as I have let my enhanced CRB lapse! 🙁

    Thanks for writing this post.
    Thinking of you all at this time.

    love

  2. Thought I’d already sent this, but hasn’t appeared. Went something like:
    Sadness, sadness all around. But lift our eyes from on the ground, raise our gaze towards the sky, remember them with just a sigh.

  4. I am sorry to hear about the tragic circumstances of your brothers death. I applaud you for using your story to raise awareness for Road Safety.

    It was great to see so many people supporting Road Safety Week this year!

    To coincide with Brakes GO 20 campaign we put together some useful advice for both cyclists and motorists which will hopefully help make our roads a safer place to travel.

  5. Sorry to hear for your loss. It is never easy when a close one is lost due to circumstances out of our control. We are very aware of the dangers of the road and are helping out with it. One of our charities of contribution is Brake.
