Don’t be distracted on the road

Road Safety Week, which runs from November 18 to 24, is asking people to ‘tune in’ to road safety in a bid to cut accidents caused by driver and pedestrian distraction.

Speaking on a mobile ‘phone, listening to loud music and eating, smoking or drinking at the wheel can be major driver distractions. Wearing headphones, talking/texting on a ‘phone, playing with a ball or not holding young children by the hand can lead to pedestrians losing concentration on the dangers of the road. The Brain Injury Group actively supports the campaigns and has detailed information on its website
