Road Safety Week 2017

Davey Law is delighted once more to be working with local primary schools Powell’s (Cirencester) and St. Mary’s (Purton) to raise awareness of road safety. 

This year Road Safety Week takes place between 20th and 26th November and this year’s message is ‘Speed Down Save Lives’.

 We all live busy lives and there is often a temptation to speed up in the hope of saving time, where in fact we could be costing lives. Mark Tawn of Davey Law commented “To keep our children safe Davey Law and our partner schools will be exploring how drivers can be encouraged to stay within speed limits and slow down to a maximum of 20mph around schools, homes and shops”.

Isobel Addison added “Now the days are shorter and the nights longer and darker it is ever more important for drivers to watch their speed, especially near schools and in built up areas. Over many years the children of Powell’s and St. Mary’s have learned to ‘be bright and be seen’.  Mark and I are thrilled to be involved with both schools as they continue their invaluable work; we always look forward to awarding prizes to the children who draw and paint such fabulous posters whilst learning about road safety”.

With permission winning entries from both schools will be displayed in Davey Law’s window and on-line following Road Safety Week .
