The Weekly Roundup

A growing number of motorists are installing ‘dash cams’ in their cars following the rise in ‘Flash for Crash’ claims last week. The £300 video cameras are being used to protect the driver against being wrongly blamed for crashes – and to shop other drivers to police!

In other news, Road Safety Charity ‘Brake’ is urging parents to wise up on child seat safety as every year more than 700 children under the age of 8 are killed or seriously injured on UK Roads. A survey of 1,000 parents revealed that only 16% would use a child seat in their car up until the child is at the recommended height of 150cm tall.
