Lex supports road safety week

As part of its involvement in Brake Road Safety Week, Lex is working with its local communities in Marlow, Manchester and Stirling to raise road safety awareness.

The theme of this year’s Road Safety Week is ‘Child Pedestrian and Cyclist Safety’.

To encourage children to think carefully about how they can stay safe on the road, Lex is running a road safety poster design competition for primary school children aged 3-11 years.

Details of the competition have been sent to over 400 primary school head teachers in the areas around its three regional offices.

Children wishing to enter are asked to design a poster promoting road safety.

Full competition details can be found on www.lex.co.uk/schools.

The best posters in two age categories will be awarded prizes, but every child who enters will receive a reflective wristband, highlighting the need to be clearly visible to motorists during the dark winter months.

In addition to the competition, Lex is sponsoring three banners which will be displayed in Marlow High Street, across Murray place in Stirling and in Manchester’s G-Mex arena.

The banners will serve as a stark reminder that 44 children were killed on the roads in the surrounding areas of Lex offices last year, and will encourage drivers to ‘Slow Down’ and ‘Let Kids Live’.
