Living Streets Scotland are hosting a seminar about its Lower Speed Communities project from 11am to 2pm on Thursday 1 March 2018 at The Lighthouse, 11 Mitchell Lane Glasgow G1 3NU.

The project, which was funded by the Scottish Government, worked in 5 communities across Scotland where local people had identified speed as an issue. The seminar will explore the work undertaken in these communities, the lessons learned and how they might be applied across Scotland.

Places are limited so to book a place please register using Eventbrite to secure your free place, with lunch included. They are also running a seminar in Inverness on Tuesday 27 February.

In case of any difficulty booking tickets please contact Pat Douglas (e: pat.douglass@livingstreets.co.uk m: 07595 374477.

The Go Safe Glasgow Road Safety Partnership works together, sharing ideas and exploring new avenues of service delivery, but more importantly they share the same objective – to reduce casualties on Glasgow’s Roads and to make our communities safer for all.

The partnership brings together a wealth of experience and includes representatives from Glasgow City Council, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and Glasgow Community and Safety Services and is led by Glasgow City Council’s Traffic and Road Safety Development Section.

The Partnership is for the benefit of all road users – drivers, cyclists, those who drive for work and our most vulnerable citizens, such as children and older people.

Road Safety Week is the UK’s biggest road safety event, coordinated annually by Brake, the road safety charity. This year the week will run from Monday 20 to Sunday 26 November and the theme will be Speed Down Save Lives.

Road Safety Week aims to inspire thousands of schools, organisations and communities to take action on road safety and promote life-saving messages during the Week and beyond. It also provides a focal point for professionals working in road safety to boost awareness and engagement in their work.

In the UK speeding is still a major problem. It causes needless crashes, untold suffering and stops people living safe and healthy lives.

*** POSTPONED ***

This event has been postponed. A new Autumn date will be announced soon.

 

Are you affected by the school run at your school? Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) and De’ils On Wheels are hosting a half-day School Run Summit on the morning of Wednesday 20 September at Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre, 64 Balmoral Street, Glasgow G14 0BL

The event will bring together a wide range of people and organisations from the G13 and G14 postcode areas to share knowledge and experience of the school run. This will include pupils, teachers, parents, parent councils, local residents, community councils, Council officers, elected members and other interested parties.

The event will look at the wider community to see if this provides opportunities for alternative solutions to the school run issue such as:

  • How can we work more closely across the community to address the school run?
  • How can the school run help improve pupil attendance and attainment?
  • How can we better promote school initiatives to tackle the school run?
  • How can we increase active travel and reduce cars and vans on the school run?

This event is free to attend but booking is required! You can book online at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/drcet-school-run-summit

road-safety-week-logoFive people are killed every single day by something we already know how to cure. Our roads are dangerous places, where hundreds of deaths and serious injuries take place every week.

But by changing our driving behaviour, we can help to make our communities safer places to be. Every action that we take, as a driver or as a passenger, can change the outcome of a journey and the future of a family.

That’s why this year Rad Safety Week will focus on the six elements of the Brake Pledge: Slow, Sober, Secure, Silent, Sharp and Sustainable.

Brake are the national charity that run Road Safety Week and they are asking everyone to make and share Brake’s Pledge online, and show their commitment to saving lives and keeping our roads safe. Anyone can join in – individuals, businesses and community organisations. Non-drivers can take the Pledge too, promising to help drivers stick to the six Pledge points.

So take action, make a difference, and Pledge to do six simple things to save lives this Road Safety Week.
