Stay alive – always wear your seatbelt
92 people injured on Burngreave Road over the last 3 years
Almost all of these road crashes were caused by people not being careful. You, your friends and your children are twice as likely to die in a crash if a seatbelt isn’t worn.
Look out for the Save Yourself message on buses and posters and don’t forget to wear a seatbelt and not to use your phone whilst driving!
It’s a fact that young drivers and children are four times more likely to be injured on our roads.
The South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership, which includes Sheffield City Council’s Road Safety team, is also conducting a range of improvements to the road and is doing lots of work in schools to make people safer.
Is your son or daughter learning to drive? The Council’s Learn Safe Drive Safe driving instructors are trained to get young drivers to think about the risks they’ll face after they’ve passed their test such as driving too fast, having friends in the car, and driving when tired.To find out more Google search: Learn Safe Drive Safe
Remember – Burngreave Road is one of the roads with the highest number of casualties in South Yorkshire – road improvements make the roads safer but it’s how you and your children use the roads that really makes the difference.
