Registered on 22nd July 2008, the AA Charitable Trust for Road Safety and The Environment is a charity which aims to promote road safety awareness in the UK. The charity’s main aims are:
- To educate on the topic of road safety
- To campaign on road safety issues
- To promote understanding and raise awareness of road safety and eco-driving in order to minimise the impact motoring has on the environment
The AA Charitable Trust for Road Safety and The Environment aims to preserve and protect human life by preventing injuries and deaths on the UK’s roads and they aim to launch one new initiative per year. The charity is currently considering several ideas for future initiatives including a motorcycle safety scheme and a drug driving educational programmed aimed at 16 to 18 year olds.
Other initiatives the charity has run in the past include Drive Smart, which offered free eco-safe driver training to new drivers, Drive Confident which provided qualified drivers lacking confidence with extra training to increase their skills, and the Think Bikes! Campaign, to remind drivers to look out for bikes and motorbikes in their blind spot.
Have you been injured on the UK’s roads?
With 30 motorcyclists killed every day at junctions in the UK, riding a motorcycle has never been so dangerous. Campaigns such as the Think Bikes! Campaign aim to raise awareness of safety for motorcyclists, but accidents can and do still happen. If you have been involved in an accident on your bike, and you believe someone else was to blame, you might be able to claim compensation. Contacting a personal injury lawyer within three years of your accident taking place will allow you to explore your options. You can claim no matter how minor or severe your injuries, whether you have suffered whiplash or been left with severe head injuries.
