Solicitors educate pupils on safe cycling

National law firm, Stephensons Solicitors LLP, is taking part in this years’ Road Safety Week to teach young pupils the importance of cycling safely.

During the week and next, Stephensons will be visiting Leigh Central in Leigh and Rose Bridge High School in Wigan in a bid to promote BRAKE’s National Road Safety Week. This years’ message, ‘look out for each other’, will highlight the importance of being aware of the different ways people use the roads.

Stephensons will be delivering an interactive BRAKE presentation that will remind the children of how to cycle safely and the importance of being aware of other road users. In addition to the serious issue of road safety, Stephensons is also running a poster competition in which the pupils’ task will be to design a road safety poster that conveys the message of Road Safety Week 2014. The top three posters, from the schools, will receive a prize.

The workshops will be led by Shahina Sakeria, a solicitor at Stephensons, who specialises in all aspects of personal injury claims.

Shahina said “We support BRAKE and the work the charity does to make our roads a safer place to be. Road deaths and injuries are a year-round problem, but Road Safety Week gives us a perfect opportunity to focus on the issue and educate children around the potential dangers of using roads.”

Last year, 23,370 people were either killed or seriously injured as a result of a road traffic accident.
