Older road users' day is well received
St Helens Council’s Road Safety and Travel Awareness Team recently held an ‘Older Road Users’ Awareness Day’ at the Town Hall.
Pedestrians, drivers and passengers over the age of 55 years were invited to attend the event, which included presentations, a multi agency market stand area and afternoon tea.
The Good Egg Older Persons Guide to Road Safety was also handed out to attendees and feedback indicated that it was well received. Gill Roberts, St Helens’ senior RSO, said: “The Guide contains such diverse information that it reduces the number of leaflets we need to take to events such as this.”
Merseyside Police also offered free driving lessons to be delivered by the AA driving school.
