The Weekly Roundup

Older motorists are being given the chance to extend their driving lifetimes by having their skills independently assessed. A leading road safety charity has revived a scheme to encourage motorists to refresh their skills. This could provide a new stimulus for pensioners who drive, especially as many of them can lose their confidence amid slower reactions on increasingly busier roads.

Brake, the road safety charity, has added its voice to the call of organisations around the world to #SaveKidsLives as part of the United Nations’ third Global Road Safety Week (4-10 May 2015). Brake is calling for a 20mph default urban speed limit to protect children and enable them to enjoy walking and cycling without fear.
