Welcome to the latest edition of N332 RoadWatch eMagazine.
As we move into June, we move into the start of summer. Children will soon be finishing school until September, which does lead to a reduction in morning and afternoon traffic, but also leads to an increased risk as children become free to explore, play and learn on their own, often finding themselves too close to the roads.
Vulnerable road users are the main topic for this issue, primarily looking at cyclists. We have had a number of tragedies recently, with cyclists killed on the roads. In one case, a drunk driver was responsible for killing three people, and seriously injuring others. In fact, two of those inured remain under medical care, only recently managing to leave intensive care, weeks after the incident.
We look at cyclists in some detail this issue, however, we must not only look at protecting them, but also at them protecting themselves, exercising respect for the laws that they not only command, but deserve.
There is lots more inside this issue which we hope you will find lots of interest, check out the contents list below, and remember to keep checking the website, n332.es, for more.
