Heeley MP backs national Road Safety Week

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Meg Munn, MP for Sheffield Heeley is backing a national campaign by road safety charity Brake which calls on road users to look out for each other to stop the five deaths and 61 serious injuries that happen every day on UK roads.

This week is Road Safety Week and thousands of schools, employers and community groups will be raising awareness about road safety. As part of this police across the country will be stepping up traffic enforcement to deter and catch drivers putting others at risk.

The lookout for each other campaign is about everyone, especially drivers, showing patience, consideration and responsibility towards other road users, especially the most vulnerable. Brake is urging drivers to protect people on foot and bike by slowing down to 20mph in communities, taking the time to look around properly, and taking it slow at junctions and bends. People on foot and bike are also being encouraged not to take chances, and make sure they can be seen.

Following the tragic death of her constituent, Fiona Buckley, who was hit by a driver who was found to have cataracts in both eyes Ms Munn has been campaigning for compulsory eye testing to make our roads safer. She has previously been named Brake’s ‘Parliamentarian of the Year National Campaigner’ for her determination to eradicate undiagnosed sleep apnoea in commercial drivers, a major cause of road crashes.

Meg said:

“Last year 1700 people were killed as a result of road crashes. All of these deaths were devastating and preventable events, not chance mishaps. When drivers use roads without care for others the consequences can be tragic and horrific people killed and badly injured. That’s why I am supporting Road Safety Week and calling on road users to look out for each other.”
