Road safety charity Brake has teamed up with First Bus to promote road safety in the South Yorkshire area. The charity Brake promotes road safety awareness using training initiatives, education and campaigns in order to make streets and communities safer. First Bus will be contributing by providing funding for the running costs of Brake’s helpline for those affected by road crashes. The charity also play a role in the organisation of events during Road Safety Week and a number of schools, communities and organisations are to get involved in this year’s events beginning on 17th November.
First Bus will also be taking part in the events and are holding a number of activities related to the theme of ‘Looking out for each other’. The aim is to provide high levels of safety for their colleagues and customers throughout the South Yorkshire area. Director of First Bus is hoping that the partnership will further promote their current safety policies and behaviours to their colleagues and all road users. Mike Bristow, Corporate Fundraiser at Brake has stated that First Bus is a fantastic example of how companies can get involved in promoting road safety.
Education can prevent accidents
The road safety charity Brake play a large role in campaigning for road safety awareness and help young children and organisations like First Bus to stay safer on the roads. Large vehicles like buses or heavy goods vehicles (HGV’s) have a responsibility to drive safely due to the damage they could potentially cause in the event of an accident. Although many drivers are well-educated on road safety awareness and many HGV drivers are suitably trained, some road users may not exercise this training while using the roads. If you have fallen victim to an injury due to a road accident that was someone else’s fault, you may be entitled to compensation.
