Sunderland school children have joined forces with Sweeney Miller solicitors to spread the road safety message.

Pupils from St Mary’s primary school were challenged by the team at Sweeney Miller to design a poster for Road Safety Week.

Road Safety Week is the UK’s flagship road safety event, and calls on people to look out for each other to help prevent the five deaths and 61 serious injuries that happen daily on UK roads.

Members of the Sweeney Miller team gave pupils from St Mary’s Eco Club a talk on road safety before issuing them a challenge to design a warning poster.

All pupils will receive a prize and the posters will be professionally printed with the winning poster designer receiving a Samsung Tablet.

St Mary’s School already runs a number of campaigns to promote road safety and recently did a Giant Walk to school in aid of the Brake charity which promotes greater care on our roads.road safety week sweeney miller

Lindsey Christie from Sweeney Miller said: “The children took our talk very seriously and gave some great answers to our mini-quiz.  You are never too young to learn about road safety.

“We are now looking forward to seeing the posters the pupils are designing.  They started work during our session and the early results look fantastic.”

Sweeney Miller Solicitors, based in Ashbrooke, have helped numerous road accident victims over the years get much-needed support to help them fund vital recovery and treatment costs.

The nature of this work has brought their dedicated team of legal experts face to face with the harsh realities many victims face following road accidents.

Road Safety Week is now in its 18th year and ran by road safety charity week Brake which aims to inspire communities to take action to promote life-saving messages. This year the theme of the annual campaign is Look Out For Each Other.
