Practitioners to engage with road users at new event in Wales
A new one-day event will give partners across Wales the chance to showcase the work they are undertaking to improve road safety across the country.
The inaugural Cruz Cymru, organised by the Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service (FRS), takes place on 3 June (11.00am - 3.00pm) at the Royal Welsh Showground.
The event will bring together a host of multi-agency partners with a dedicated focus on road safety, to engage with a range of visitors, including young drivers.
Cruz Cymru will focus on the ‘biggest factors that cause accidents’ on roads in Wales, collectively known as the ‘FATAL 5’ - speeding, alcohol, drugs, mobile phones and seat belts.
The indoor event will feature static displays from Car Cruz clubs and motorcycle enthusiasts, as well as live demonstrations by the Mid and West Wales FRS.
Mydrian Harries, Mid and West Wales FRS, said: “Tragically, far too many adults, young people and children are killed and seriously injured on our roads every year, affecting the lives of everyone around them, from family and friends through to the surrounding Community.
“This event, will, for a few hours, bring a dedicated focus on the biggest factors that cause accidents on our roads which are captured by the FATAL 5 messages.”
