Yesterday (16 November) was World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, and this week (17-21 November) is UK Road Safety Week, organised by Brake, the road safety charity.  So it seems appropriate that we have a new infographic sent to us from Southside Motor Factors in Ireland with a snapshot of global road accident statistics.

Road safety is everyone’s issue, and it is essential that all road users play their part.  Paying attention to what you are doing and being aware of what’s going on around you are two areas which require no skills or training, but can make a massive difference to your own safety and that of others.  Brake’s slogan for Road Safety Week 2014 is “Look Out For Each Other”, and it’s something we can all apply – regardless of whether you are a car driver, cyclist, pedestrian, van driver, motorcyclist or lorry driver.
