Let’s Talk About Speed

It’s road safety week 2023 – the UK’s biggest annual road safety campaign organised by Brake the road safety charity.  The theme for this year is Let’s Talk About Speed.

Five people die on roads every day – so why do we think it’s OK to speed?

Throughout the week, we’ll be covering Road Safety Week on MIX56 – with advice on winter service checks and insurance – along with a Live Broadcast with special guests at McDonalds Lymm Services on Tuesday 21st November.
