Claim Today Solicitors has a strong reputation in helping victims of road traffic accidents get the compensation they deserve and look forward to the future. However, what that has showed us is that we need to do more to improve the safety of Britain’s roads.
In 2016 alone, 1,792 people died in a road traffic accident and 24,101 people suffered serious injuries across the country. That’s an average of 5 deaths and 66 serious injuries every day on the road.
As a company, we decided back in 2013 that something needed to be done to combat the number of casualties from road traffic accidents. That led to the creation of our Clock on to Safety project with Birmingham City Council’s Road Safety Partnership.
We joined forces with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra to deliver a Road Safety Concert to over 3,000 school children, educating them on principles of road safety through music and interaction in a stage spectacular.
Our road safety projects have gone from strength to strength, and in 2015-16 we worked alongside our partners to foster greater involvement from local communities.
We teamed up with St Clare’s Primary School, working with a team of parents, teachers, and children, to produce another stage show, StreetWize. Clips from the filmed production will be made available to schools through an online platform as part of a pack of learning resources and lesson plans, so that workshops can be delivered in over 300 schools across Birmingham.
Today, we continue to work with Birmingham City Council to provide road safety workshops to local schools.
