Claim Today Solicitors are launching a children’s road safety education project throughout England & Wales. The campaign gets kick started in two Birmingham Primary Schools during Road Safety Week 21st – 28th November 2011.
Lawyers used to dealing with the aftermath of road accidents will be entertaining kids with an animated film and an interactive presentation to get them thinking about staying safe while crossing the road.
The film features CTS clock. He delivers a serious message to the children whilst wearing a friendly face. A human size CTS Clock joins in the presentation too helping to fix the youngsters attention on the important message.
The idea for the national schools tour sprang from the company’s involvement with the charity Brake. Brake campaign for measures to reduce the number of deaths on our roads. They also provide support for children and families who are bereaved as a result of a car crash.
The company is corporate sponsors of the charity and our people are involved in fund raising activities throughout the year. We were moved to go the extra mile when Brake shared with us the horrific statistics for the death and serious injury of young drivers on our roads. It is a sad fact that boys and girls between the ages of 17-24 a four times more likely to die in a road accident than older people. At least 15 young people are killed in car crashes every week.
The risks for young people are on the rise. Today’s more powerful cars combined with the recklessness of youth are a recipe for disaster. That’s why we decided to help get a strong road safety message out to children long before they get behind the wheel. You can find helpful advice about keeping young people safe on the roads on www.brake.org.uk . There are also opportunities for you to help Brake with their important work.
