Road users reminded to look out for each other in safety campaign

Release date: 
Saturday, 2 September, 2017
With summer school holiday over and roads getting busier, Burnley Council and other organisations are urging drivers, cyclists and pedestrians to look out for each other. 
 
Eye-catching signs have been put up across the borough encouraging all road users to be more considerate towards each other with the aim of helping to make roads safer in Burnley and Padiham. 
 
Leaflets promoting the campaign have gone out to schools, nurseries and other establishments across the borough and parents and carers are also being asked to be aware of the risks children face on the road.  
 
The campaign is run by the Lancashire Road Safety Partnership, and a key aim is to reduce the number of children killed or seriously injured on the road. 
 
A partnership representative said: "Regrettably, a number of children are involved in accidents on Lancashire’s roads each year and we all have a part to play in helping to keep children safe on the roads.  
 
"I'd like to encourage everyone to be extra careful on the roads and not take risks, because children copy adults' behaviour and if they see others taking risks they will probably take risks too. It's essential to set a good example.” 
 
For further information, including tips on how car drivers, cyclists and pedestrians can help keep each other safe, please visit http://www.safe2travel.co.uk/lookout .
