Despite the theme of Road Safety Week 2022 in November being ‘safe roads for all’ the country is facing a crisis of serious injuries and deaths on our roads every day. There were nearly 1,560 fatalities and a total of almost 24,500 deaths and serious injuries in 2021
 
The 2021 ‘Safe Roads for All’ report urges the government to prioritise safe and healthy mobility including prevention of death and serious injury from road crashes. One of the recommended goals is to ‘work towards eradicating deaths and catastrophic injuries from crashes in the long-term and target incremental results towards this’. 
 
The report says, ‘There is a national tragedy on our roads every week that must stop’. It rightly points out that the word ‘accident’ implies inevitability and no blame while the word ‘crash’ better describes what is happening on our roads. There is insufficient priority given to understanding the causes of road crashes and practical prevention measures. 
Delighted to have received these comments from a happy customer 
Good evening Richard, 
 
Thank you for your voicemail a couple of days ago.....despite what the northern couriers told you, the screens I ordered arrived very promptly, thank you very much.  
 
I was away for a couple of days hence the delay in getting back to you. As promised, I have opened up the screen that I bought for my horsebox and had a fun time this afternoon having a bit of a photoshoot.  
 
The suction pads work well on the tailgate and the screen is a good size. 
 
Kind regards 
Caroline

All motorists know the frustrations and risks of a breakdown, especially on smart motorways, where the UK Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps, has recently acknowledged safety measures need to be improved. 
 
 
For better visibility that will help to reduce the risk of accidents drivers will soon be able to warn other road users of breakdowns with an innovative new safety product.
