Don’t be a Fatal Five statistic

Cardiff Council’s Road Safety Team, in partnership with neighbouring local authorities and supported by South Wales Police and South Wales Fire and Rescue Service is focussing its attention on raising awareness of the five main causes of fatal road traffic collisions in Wales.

1. SPEEDING

Speed kills, so kill your speed before you kill yourself, your passengers, or other innocent road users. Read more…

2. ALCOHOL

Never drink and drive, any amount of alcohol affects your ability to drive.  If you are over the limit, you could be under arrest. Read more…

3. DRUGS

Driving under the influence of drugs is an offence. You can face a minimum one-year driving ban and a fine of up to £5,000 or a prison sentence. Read more…

4. MOBILE PHONES

Driving and mobile phones do not mix.  You are four times more likely to have an accident if you are on you phone.  Lose your phone, not your life. Read more…

5. SEAT BELTS

Front and back, belt up or face an instant £60 Fixed Penalty Notice.  Wearing a seat belt can mean the difference between life and death! Read more…

 

The Council’s aim is simple, to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on Cardiff’s roads.  Cardiff Road Safety Team is committed to making sure our communities are safer places to work, live and play.
You can help by driving responsibly and spreading the road safety message as widely as possible – never take the risk, the consequences could be fatal.
