West Midlands Ambulance Service is supporting the United Nations Global Road Safety week to encourage members of the public to be safer on the region’s roads.

The UN Global Road Safety week, from 4th – 10th May, is the third of its kind and this year seeks to highlight the plight of children on the world’s roads and generate action to better ensure their safety.

The Trust attended more than 17,000 road traffic collision in 2014, on average that’s 300 a week.

Over the course of this week, West Midlands Ambulance Service will be offering advice to road users via videos and facts in a bid to help members of the public avoid becoming a patient in the back of one of our ambulances.

Whether you choose a car, bicycle, motorbike or your own two feet to get around, use common sense to avoid becoming a statistic.
