Play a part in making roads safer


Date published: 02 January 2019

We can all play a part in reducing the number of deaths and serious injuries on the roads. The majority of road deaths are down to human error, including poor road user behaviour, and therefore are preventable.

Personal responsibility

Every day and every journey brings with it a new risk and we need to be on our guard at all times.

We all have to behave responsibly as we share the road – for our own safety, the safety of our passengers and that of other road users. 

It is our actions that make a difference, such as:

  • slowing down
  • always paying attention
  • never driving after drinking or taking drugs
  • ignoring the mobile phone
  • looking out for those who walk, cycle or ride a motorcycle as they are more vulnerable
  • always wearing a seatbelt, no matter how short the journey
