National Road Safety Week: Drive Less, Live More

National Road Safety Week: Drive Less, Live More

Road Safety Week 2015 starts on Monday 23 November and is the UK’s biggest road safety event.  This year's national campaign of Brake, the road safety charity, is encouraging people to drive less, live more and make our streets safer.

Drive Less, Live More

The Road Safety Week 2015 theme, 'Drive Less, Live More', asks everybody to consider how we use our roads.  Can we reduce the number of car journeys by walking, cycling or using public transport instead?

5 People Killed on our Roads Every Day

The sad facts are that in 2014, five people were killed and more than 60 others were seriously injured every day on our roads.  With 40% of car journeys lasting less than 2 miles, the hope is that if these can be reduced then the number of deaths and serious injuries on our roads will also fall.  Road Safety Week is an opportunity for all of us to spread life-saving road safety messages.  ‘Drive less, live more’, to help everyone get around in safety.  As part of their campaign, Brake will reveal new research on how people view driving less and also the benefits of driving less.

What our clients say

We know that we have been extremely fortunate to have had such a consummate PI lawyer in Andy acting on our behalf but we have also been blessed by having had his support, trust, friendship and loyalty throughout. We cannot ever thank him enough.

The compensation Nicola has received has helped her move from a tiny council flat into a massive bungalow which has been specifically adapted. It has enabled her to have a better life.

If it was not for the help of my solicitor I don't know where I would have been today. He provided a great deal of emotional support and secured compensation at various stages from the insurance company to fund my treatment and allow me to live. He was there from start to finish.

Higgs & Sons acted for us for 5 years until our daughters claim for personal injuries was finally settled. Ian remains a trustee of our daughters trust fund and we now look upon him as a friend.
