We promote road safety awareness in Scotland

Let's make 2022 safer together.

Wear a seatbelt

Not wearing a seatbelt can have big consequences.
These statistics show the difference it makes.

44%

Wearing a seatbelt reduces both fatal and non-fatal injuries by 44% among rear seat passengers

75%

Only 75% of drivers considered not wearing a seatbelt as ‘very serious’, well below the 93% who consider drink driving and drug driving to be ‘very serious’

Our campaigns

Speed

A little bit of speeding could land you in a lot of trouble

You’re running a little bit late. You’re only a little bit over the speed limit. The roads are quiet. You’re just doing what everyone else does. You’re a careful driver, you’re in control. These are the things we all tell ourselves when we drive too fast on Scotland’s roads.

Seatbelts

It's not just you who gets hurt. Wear a seatbelt

Not wearing a seatbelt can have big consequences. Your friends’ and family’s lives could all be affected. So, don’t ever skip it – even for short journeys.

Distractions

Driving with distractions

Becoming distracted in the car is a significant contributory factor in road casualties amongst 20 – 29 year olds. If you’re determined to stay safe, do yourself a favour and drive like Gran’s in the car.

Children and Educators

Our teaching resources equip children with the skills, knowledge and attitudes that will help them stay safe now and in later life.
