Road Safety Week is a national campaign that we are supporting to ask drivers in the South Central region to sign up to a number of pledges to help reduce deaths and injuries on our roads. These include – slowing down, staying sober, avoiding distractions whilst driving (i.e. don’t use your phone) and always wearing a seatbelt.
Anita Urry, Paramedic Team Leader, Wexham Resource Centre
Anita is urging everyone to stay completely sober on the roads this Road Safety Week and pledge to do the following:
I’ll never drive after drinking any alcohol or drugs – not a drop, not a drag.

Mark Ainsworth-Smith, Consultant Pre-Hospital Care Practitioner, Hampshire
Mark would like everyone this Road Safety Week to reduce their risk of death and serious injury by pledging to do the following:
I’ll make sure everyone in my vehicle is belted up on every journey, and kids smaller than 150cm are in a proper child restraint. I’ll choose the safest vehicle I can and ensure it’s maintained.
Please help Mark deal with less deaths and injuries caused when drivers and passengers are not wearing seatbelts by making your pledge at www.roadsafetyweek.org.uk/pledge
Darren Weston, Clinical Operations Manager, Oxfordshire
Darren would like everyone this Road Safety Week to make everyone on our roads safer by pledging to do the following:
I’ll never take or make calls, read or type when driving. I’ll put communication devices out of reach, and stay focussed on the road.
