Road Safety Week - Keeping Horses Safe on the Roads
Road Safety Week 2020 (16 - 22 November), Brake
are sharing the what, the why, and the where of speed, because whether you’re walking to school, riding on a country road or driving for work, the speed of traffic matters to your safety.
Someone is injured on a UK road every four minutes, and with vehicle speed playing a part in every crash, it’s time to come together to say that there is No Need to Speed.
With new BHS statistics
showing that road incidents involving horses and vehicles are continuing to rise, The BHS is urging drivers to be more careful when passing horses on the road and encouraging them to adhere to its Dead Slow campaign messages.
It is more important than ever to take action. Help to raise awareness through requesting your free car sticker or sharing the campaign message on your social media pages.
Also please remember to report your incidents to us via our Horse Incidents website as this helps us to better understand the rate of equine-related incidents across the UK.
You can also support The British Horse Society and help us in our work to ensure the safety of horses and riders by donating to our 'Dead? Or Dead Slow?' campaign.
