Road Safety Week
During the week fire and rescue services across the UK will be working to get road safety messages across to all road users, and in particular to pedestrians, young drivers, cyclists and motorcyclists. Deaths and injuries on the road affect not just the individual — the lives of families can be destroyed by losing a loved one, or changed forever by having to care for a family member with life-changing injuries.
The week is also being supported by national partners, including the Association of Chief Police Officers, Highways Agency, Department for Transport, Brake, Road Safety GB, RoSPA, Tyresafe, Living Streets, the RAC Foundation and the MAG Foundation.
The overarching message of this year's UK Road Safety Week by fire and rescue services is 'Be Safe Out There' and firefighters in Cheshire, alongside police colleagues, are supporting the week through. Click here for full details of events in our area.
