Motor insurance: Campaign launched 'to save lives'

Wednesday, 24 October 2007

A campaign to improve the safety of Scottish roads has been instigated by the transport minister Stewart Stevenson.

Such a move was made after the government in Scotland said that a third of road deaths involve those who are under the age of 25, reports the Herald.

Murrayfield stadium in Edinburgh played host to the launch of the Safe Drive Stay Alive campaign, with a number of rugby players present at the event.

"The fire and rescue services are the front line. Day in, day out, they witness the awful consequences of road accidents on Scotland's roads," he commented.

He added that the message that irresponsible driving leads to death can be "reinforced" at this time.

As well as the risk of injury, those involved in accidents could find that their car insurance premiums are affected if they are prosecuted.

Recently, Grampian Police stated that almost 1,000 motorists have escaped punishment for speeding in the area because their cars are registered overseas.
