This week, Ramsdens are proud to be supporting Brake Charity throughout their Road Safety Week. Despite The Road Traffic Act 1988 dealing with the requirement to take protective measures in the form of wearing seatbelts and helmets, and of course it being common sense to do so, it is surprising to find that accidents still occur where people have not taken such precautions. One of the main safety issues in relation to road traffic accidents is failure to wear a seatbelt.

This month is National Road Victim Month, a time to remember those killed or seriously injured on our roads. The immediate aftermath of a serious collision is, for all concerned, a time of shock.

Any individuals who were at the collision scene will also have witnessed traumatic events. The Police have specialist Liaison Officers who will explain what is known regarding the collision at that time and the process of investigation to follow.
