From quiz shows to story time, it's safe to say that Absafe made road safety week a roaring success. Running from the 18th-22nd of November, we filled our week with quizzes, events and safety campaigns.
Wednesday saw the pilot of our new quiz show "You've got to be skidding". - Contestants from Premier Oil and Shell geared up to answer on their key pads and battle against their colleagues to be crowned as king or queen of the road. The quiz was great fun and was a fabulous way to give out advice on a number of different winter driving issues, from tyre tread to dealing with icy conditions. We'd be delighted to come and visit you too, so get in touch to (driving) test your knowledge!
Road safety was also important to St Joseph's RC Primary School on Friday as they launched their new road safety campaign. Sarah and Emma from Absafe spent the morning with the primary 1 and 2 classes, teaching them the importance of the green cross code. The pupils and staff then joined Absafe outside to unveil a striking banner designed by the children, reminding drivers to slow down near their school. To be hung on the school railings, with the simple message, 'Please don't run us over' the pupils hope the banner will highlight their location to motorists, prompting them to look out for pedestrians and keep to 20 mph around 9am and 3.15pm. The unveiling attracted a lot of attention from passers-by and the media, with the event being covered on local radio, BBC Reporting Scotland and STV Evening News. Check out our facebook page to see some great pictures of the day.
We're really delighted to have had such a successful week. We wish you all an incident free winter and a happy festive season!

We are delighted to announce our fantastic new partnership with Premier Oil. As an organisation with safety as its number one priority, Premier Oil is an ideal ally in the campaign to save lives and promote safety education across the region. Not only has Premier Oil pledged money towards making The Safe a reality, they are also organising some fantastic fundraising activities in the community. Premier Oil staff will also be volunteering at many of Absafe’s projects like Safe Team, Get Safe for Work and Safe at Home.
Thanks to the pledge for The Safe and the commitment and enthusiasm of the people from Premier Oil, Absafe will be able to achieve so much more and reach many more people. We’re excited about our partnership and we’re looking forward to working with everyone at Premier.
