On March 14 BHS Scotland organised a parliamentary briefing on ‘Safer Riders, Safer Drivers, Safer Roads & Horses’ sponsored by Gillian Martin MSP, within The Fleming Room at the Scottish Parliament. The main speaker was Alan Hiscox Director of Safety and the full briefing is attached. The event featured the British Horse Society’s Dead Slow Campaign and highlight work that is being done for vulnerable road users in Scotland in particular Police Scotland Lose the Blinkers campaign.
Helene Mauchlen (BHS) said: “Our parliamentary briefing on the Dead Slow campaign was 100% positive with firm engagement from partners, super support from Police Scotland and a great interest from MSPs. There is no doubt this will have furthered the aims of the British Horse Society and improved the public highway for vulnerable road users by raising the needs of riders on the road among decision makers. The latest statistics are horrific so the need for education is immense.”
