DWV Smart Repair Solutions

DWV taking part in Road Safety Week

From 14th to 20th November, DWV will be supporting Road Safety Week, an annual campaign run by UK charity Brake.

The aim of the week is for UK organisations to raise awareness of road safety, helping to prevent road deaths and injuries, and support people affected by road crashes. Each year, thousands of schools, organisations and communities share important road safety messages, and help to raise funds so that Brake can provide care for more road victims and campaign for safe roads for everyone.

The theme of this year’s Road Safety Week is Safe Roads For All, and DWV will be joining communities and other professionals to promote rights for everyone to undertake safe and healthy journeys on roads.

Why is Road Safety Week so important?

  • Every 22 minutes, someone is killed or seriously injured on a UK road
  • Every day, six children are killed or seriously injured on UK roads
  • In 2021, 1,558 people were killed on roads in Britain, and more than 25,000 people suffered serious injuries
  • Road crashes are devastating events for families, friends and communities
  • Road Safety Week gives us all the opportunity to remember those killed or injured on UK roads, and raise funds to help Brake care for road victims and campaign for safe roads for all

Each of the days during Road Safety Week also focus on a specific keyword, which are as follows:

Chris Wood, Managing Director at DWV said: “DWV cares very deeply about road safety. Not only do we perform repairs on vehicles every single day, but our fleet of nationwide vehicles are constantly on the move. We endeavour for our mobile technicians to set an example on the roads, so that they drive with care and consideration for those around them, ensuring that UK roads are a safe place for drivers and pedestrians alike. I encourage everyone to take the messages away from Road Safety Week and remember them every time they are using the road.”
