Forward look…

As the ‘beast from the east’ finally shows signs of retreating, families and communities may take the opportunity to venture out on roads which are recovering from snow, ice and flooding. With the clocks going forward, the prospect of longer days, better temperatures and bank holidays can put more traffic on the roads.

With the changing season, it’s all the more important to ensure that babies and children are safe in cars. Car seats especially may need to be checked for size with growing children. Drivers need to remain as watchful for the child that could stray onto the road or the young cyclist, as they are when avoiding that pothole.  

Families going out and about on foot need to take special care in crossing busy roads and in keeping hold of toddlers’ hands in car parks and shopping areas.
