On Your Bike! Supporting Road Safety Week 2018

19.11.2018

Linzie Viles and Louisa Winning from our Mansfield office are donning their best cycling gear to highlight the importance of being seen, and staying safe in support of National Road Safety Week 2018.

National charity www.Brake.org.uk have been running a road safety campaign for many years now, and this years’ focus is all about being ‘Bike Smart’.

Cyclists and motorcyclists are amongst our most vulnerable road users, suffering disproportionately high instances of serious injuries as a result of road collisions. 


With nights drawing in and the onset of wintery conditions, here are a few top tips to stay safe:


1.    Wear bright, reflective clothing, particularly after dusk


2.     Put additional reflectors on your bicycle, such as on the wheels and pedals


3.     Use lights on the front and rear of your bicycle


4.     Wear a helmet


5.     Regularly check your tyres, brakes and reflectors


6.     For all road users, be considerate and remain alert


Linzie and Louisa have over 20 years’ collective experience assisting people who have suffered life changing injuries, and sadly some families who have lost loved ones as a result of cycling and motorcycling accidents. 


If you or a loved one have been involved in an accident, contact our Personal Injury team, on 01623 626141 or at linziev@shacklocks.co.uk to discuss how we may be able to help you.
