LRSC welcomes new website sponsors

The London Road Safety Council (LRSC) is delighted to welcome two new organisations as co-sponsors of its website.

Peddle My Wheels and O’Hara Bros. Surfacing Ltd have as of 1 November joined long-term supporter Cycle Confident as supporters of the LRSC website.

At its core, the aim of the LRSC is to reduce casualties by providing a forum to discuss road safety issues, as well as delivering projects and promoting resources and publicity materials.

Its online presence is a key element to this work – as demonstrated by the recent Heads Up, Phones Down campaign.

The three campaign videos, which have been viewed more than 2.1 million times on social media, follow the journeys of typical Londoners and show how being absorbed in distracting on-line conversations and internet surfing causes them to come a cropper.

Meanwhile, the LRSC website newsfeed covers all the latest road safety news from across the Capital – as well as information about road safety initiatives and campaigns by individual boroughs, and details of training and other resources.

Councillor Teji Barnes, chair of the LRSC said “The London Road Safety Council is an organisation much valued by its members and I know that the support of our business community is greatly appreciated by our membership.

“I hope that others will see the worth in joining with the LRSC to enable us to further our work in driving down London’s road casualties.”
