Road Safety Week is from 18th–24th November 2013

Did you know? Road Safety Week is from 18th – 24th November. It is co-ordinated by the UK Road Safety Charity BRAKE. This year BRAKE is asking everyone to “pledge to tune in to road safety – that means promising to do your best to keep focused on the task at hand, and never putting yourself and others in danger for the sake of a call, text or other activity that can wait”. Living Streets Guernsey (www.livingstreets.org.gg ) is once again encouraging organisations to take part in “Bright Day” – a dress down day on Friday 22nd November to emphasise its message BE SAFE BE SEEN. Chair of Living Streets Guernsey, Tom Le Pelley, says: “Negotiating Guernsey’s narrow roads is always a challenge and even more so on a dark rainy night when your vision is limited. “Bright Day” is a fun day with a serious message. Everyone taking part is encouraged to dress in brightly coloured clothes to emphasise the importance for pedestrians and cyclists to be visible after dark.” So far the following organisations have confirmed they are taking part on 22nd November: Butterfield Bank, OSA Recruitment, the Insurance Corporation, Mercator Trust and Frossard House. Specsavers (who is one of the main sponsors of the UK event) will be holding their “Bright Day” on 6th hoping that more organisations might still take part. “We will be using all the funds collected during “Bright Day” to buy high visibility items which will be distributed to those who take part in the event and also to schools. Last year we raised over £800 and distributed over 400 hi-vis items to employees and to schools for their cycle proficiency and Walk to School initiatives.”
