OUR VISION

To reduce infant pedestrian road deaths to zero

Through the promotion and advancement of road safety, associated emergency response, care and rehabilitative treatment through the funding of research and related charities

 

FIX THE A10

Protect Pedestrians

Make the A10 Safe for Children

The A10 is known for being a death trap for drivers and pedestrians alike:

  • Reduce the speed limit from 50mph to 30mph between Ely Road and Denny End Road

  • Erect safety barriers to protect pedestrians from fast moving traffic at junctions

  • Install traffic lights or a longer term solution to make junctions safe once and for all

We need our council to protect our children and design out the danger from our roads.

LOUIS' LAW

Age Affects Driving Ability

Retest for All Drivers at 70

Ensure Drivers are safe to drive by instigating:

  • Retest at 70 and then every 3 years

  • Annual eye test from 70

  • Annual hearing test

  • Annual Perception test

  • Annual reaction time test

The driver who caused Louis’s death was an elderly woman in her 70s who shouldn't have been driving.  

The laws today mean there is no consequence for this 

VISION ZERO

Make Roads 'Safe Systems'

For All Road Users

All roads can be made safe through design.  One death on the road is too many and we must stop accepting deaths on our roads.  Louis' life would have been saved by appropriate road design segregating pedestrians from traffic or reducing speed limits to a safe level.  Let's stop blaming drivers and start ensuring our councils and road designers are creating safe places.

It’s simple, Traffic Deaths are Preventable but only if we change the way we think about the road system.
