Road Safety Week 2017

November 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.

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

We all live busy lives and there can be a temptation to speed up in the hope of saving time, when in fact we could be costing lives. Mark Tawn of Davey Law commented “To help 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 evenings longer and darker, it is even more important for drivers to watch their speed, especially near schools and in built-up areas. Over the years the children of Powell’s and St Mary’s have learned to ‘be bright and be seen’. Mark and I are delighted to continue working with both schools on this invaluable initiative, and we always look forward to awarding prizes to the children who draw and paint such fabulous posters on the theme of road safety”.

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