Road Safety Week 2013 ran from 18th to 24th November 2013, with the theme of ‘Tune In’; aimed to encourage drivers to tune into road safety and minimise their risk of involvement in a road traffic accident.
Modern day accidents on the road
Road Safety Week reported that driver distraction was ‘a major cause of death and serious injury in the UK’ in 2011/12, according to the Department for Transport.
It would come as no surprise if that statement still stands true for 2013, as the number of gizmos and gadgets we own merely increases.
While it is illegal for drivers to use a handheld mobile phone while driving, it doesn’t stop other distractions taking the mind off the road.
Distractions that cause accidents on the road include, but are not limited to:
- Bluetooth mobile phone conversations
- CDs, MP3s, and Radio (Audio)
- Applying make-up
