Whether motorists are driving a new or used car is completely irrelevant – drive safe, drive aware and always ‘think child’ and the consequences that driving too fast or using a mobile phone could have on a child’s life, their family’s and your own.
Macclesfield, Cheshire (PRWEB UK) 4 September 2013
As parents across the UK prepare to return their children back to school after the summer holidays, the latest road safety figures show that extra caution should be taken during the daily commute.
According to the latest numbers released by Road Safety Analysis, over one thousand children are still being hurt while travelling to and from school every single month.
From 2006 through to 2011 statistics indicate that there was one injury to a child reported everyday across a third of local school catchment areas with only one fifth of schools drawing a blank on reporting any incidents.
The collated figures equate to total of 85,814 minors being injured on UK roads - all within 500 metres of a school, which is 1,190 every month.
Car Loan 4U Director Ryan Dignan, comments:
“It’s never easy to digest negative road safety figures, even more so when children are involved.
“These latest figures clearly highlight the huge safety risks that families face every day during the school term, but more importantly it sends a clear message to drivers across the UK that they need to be extra vigilant when driving near schools.
“Whether motorists are driving a new or used car is completely irrelevant – drive safe, drive aware and always ‘think child’ and the consequences that driving too fast or using a mobile phone could have on a child’s life, their family’s and your own."
