Plea for extra care from Isle drivers

THIS week is Road Safety Week - and Isle drivers are urged to take extra care behind the wheel.

Over the past 12 months Humberside Fire and Rescue Service has attended over 400 road traffic collisions on the region’s roads.

The week also marks the official launch of the Think B 4 U Drink campaign - a police, health and fire service initiative that asks people to consider the health effects of alcohol, how it can lead to anti-social behaviour, the increased risk of a cooking-related fire after drinking too much, and the dangers of drinking and driving. A number of public safety demonstrations will be held.
