So sim­ple

Rutherglen Reformer - - Info..Info..Info.. -

Michael McDonnell, di­rec­tor of Road Safety Scot­land, was keen to get the mes­sage across to driv­ers.

He said:“Driv­ers are seven times as likely to kill a pedes­trian if they hit them at 30mph than at 20mph, so it’s im­por­tant to drive at an ap­pro­pri­ate speed for the en­vi­ron­ment and the con­di­tions, look­ing out for pedes­tri­ans at all times. Sim­ple mis­takes can have se­ri­ous con­se­quences.

“The mes­sage is sim­ple: ‘In Town, Slow Down’.”
