Calls For Road Safety Volunteers

Volunteers are needed to teach road safety across Norfolk after one of the biggest jumps in road deaths over Christmas and New Year.

Between December 14 and New Year’s Eve nine people, including two children, died in separate traffic accidents in the county.
 
Now Norfolk County Council's Road Safety Team are encouraging more people to sign up to help deliver road safety training in communities across Norfolk to prevent further tragedies.

The volunteer drive, which is part of the wider road safety campaign ‘Keep your mind on the road’, was launched just over a month ago (14 November 2012) and has so far seen 57 Norfolk people offer their services.

All volunteers will be trained and accompanied on the training sessions, which includes child car seat checking, workshops for younger drivers and teaching cycling and pedestrian safety to children. The overall aim is to encourage communities in Norfolk to take collective action to help make their roads safer by helping better educate fellow residents.

Volunteers can still register their interest by visiting www.norfolk.gov.uk/mindroad or calling 0344 800 8020. Volunteering can be shaped around the person’s lifestyle and commitments and will receive the full support and training from Norfolk County Council’s road safety team.
