Sunderland Echo - - Retro -

Meet the most road safety con­scious fam­ily in the North East.

The Nut­tings have proved they are no slouches when it comes to an­swer­ing tough ques­tions on the tricky bits of the High­way Code.

Mum Lynn (29), dad James (40), and sons Dar­ren (7) and Brian (9), came out tops in the lo­cal heat of Gen­eral Ac­ci­dent’s search to find the nation’s Road­safe Fam­ily of the Year. The are now the proud hold­ers of the Gen­eral Ac­ci­dent Road­safe Branch Tro­phy, and also won a holdall full of car ac­ces­sories. “Do­ing the com­pe­ti­tion was lots of fun, and even though we didn’t get through to the na­tional fi­nals, it doesn’t mat­ter,” said Lynn. “What does mat­ter is that the fam­ily now had a good knowl­edge of road safety, and that could save a life.”
