Service supports National Road Safety Week with Dorset events

Date: 16th November, 2016

National Road Safety Week is running between 21 and 27 November, and Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service – on behalf of Dorset Road Safe – will be running two events in support of the campaign.

The charity Brake, which runs Road Safety Week, is focusing on six road safety elements:

Brake is encouraging people to make an on-line pledge to show their commitment to road safety – visit www.roadsafetyweek.org.uk for more.

Dorset Road Safe is a partnership that brings together Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, Dorset Police, Dorset County Council, Borough of Poole Council, Bournemouth  Borough Council, SafeWise, Highways England and South Western Ambulance Service.

During Road Safety Week, nearly 800 students from the Weymouth area will take part in a road safety event at Weymouth Pavilion on 21 November, with a Safe Drive Stay Alive presentation and a display outside the venue.

Then, on 24 November, the Safe Drive roadshow will visit Sherborne Girls’ School, with around 100 students expected to benefit.

Ian Hopkins, road safety manager at Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, is co-ordinating the events on behalf of the partnership. He said: “National Road Safety Week is a great opportunity to consider all of the risks to drivers, rather than focusing on one specific issue. Everyone has a responsibility for road safety, whether they are a driver or a passenger, and our education programme is designed to bring that home as effectively as possible.”
