Highlands & Islands MSP and road safety campaigner, David Stewart whose team launched the Winter Driving Checklist yesterday (18/11/13), along with James Hamilton, Group Marketing Manager with Macrae & Dick and supported by Tesco and Stagecoach Bus, today lodged a motion in the Scottish Parliament recognising the efforts of the road safety charity BRAKE with regards to the organisation's commitment to improving road safety and supporting the community, by progressing a myriad of informative, educational and readily available advice streams.
David Stewart said, “ I am delighted to highlight the efforts of BRAKE and other road safety groups, who are all trying to do their bit to make our roads safer.
"It is a fact that by working together with the same aim in mind we can and will make a difference”.
He continued “ This is road safety week 2013, an opportunity for us all to reflect on our driving habits and behaviour.
"Let us make this week, the week we really start to try and show courtesy to other road users, the week we think before we act and the week we all reflect on our driving habits and take stock”.
The text of David Stewart's motion reads :
That the Parliament acknowledges the work of the road safety charity, Brake, and the many initiatives that it produces and implements to improve road safety, educate road users of all ages and provide support and guidance for victims of road collisions; understands that, as part of the work of this charity, 18 to 24 November 2013 has been designated Road Safety Week, and congratulates the organisation on its commitment to improving road safety and supporting the community by continually moving forward with a myriad of informative, educational and readily available advice streams.
