Bradford team engages with local community

09.05 | 9 August 2010 |

Bradford Council’s road safety team is working with neighbourhood wardens and the police to help families across the city stay safe on the roads this summer.

Initiatives introduced by the team include a leaflet giving advice on how to keep young children safe through the proper use of car seats and child restraints, and another leaflet and DVD spelling out the possible consequences of not wearing a seat belt.

The team is also using wheelie bin stickers to remind drivers to slow down.

On every Monday and Tuesday afternoon throughout August, RSOs will go door-to-door to visit residents. The team hopes to have engaged with around 1,000 local residents by the end of the month.

Councillor Ghazanfer Khaliq said: “This is a great way to engage with local people on a number of issues. I am sure residents will be grateful for the advice given and will hopefully change their behaviour.”
