On Thursday evening I attended my first, and hopefully last, speed awareness course. I was completely gob-smacked at how little I knew about the roads, signs and hazards around me. I have always been a careful driver, ironically Hubby says I drive like a granny… after doing this course I will be even more aware of the environment around me and drive more carefully.
This week is road safety week, 21st to 27th November, and Kiddicare asked me to think about what that means to me. It made me think back to when I had my car accident: two years ago now. Luckily the children were not in the car, but did you know that you still have to replace the car seats? Recently the child booster seat law changed indicating that booster seats are now not as safe. This meant when I replaced the car seats I was able to get the right seats and keep the children safe!
