The Weekly Roundup

Brake, the road safety charity, is calling on the government to introduce compulsory regular eyesight testing for drivers, as a survey with Specsavers and RSA Insurance Group shows strong public support.  Research indicates this change in the law would significantly reduce the estimated 2,900 casualties caused by poor driver vision each year.

In response to the fact millions of teenagers have just received their GCSE results, a week-long social media campaign has been launched to encourage them to consider a career in automotive. The organisations involved will unite for the first time under the IMI’s campaign to promote automotive retail sector careers under one banner to maximise impact. It is hoped the combined effort will drive more young people than ever to consider a career in the motor industry.
