New CTC Website - Stop SMIDSY
I don't think anyone has flagged up this new site from the CTC (there is a post over on Campaign but not everyone goes there and yes I did do a search)
Stop ‘Sorry Mate, I Didn’t See You’
Because sometimes sorry just isn’t enough.
Bad driving intimidates and harms innocent people. Cyclists and pedestrians are particularly endangered by negligent or aggressive driving because we’re not encased in a few tonnes of metal every time we set out on the roads.
Stop SMIDSY will address how the police, prosecutors, the courts, and the law itself could all do a better job at encouraging people to use the roads in safer and more considerate ways. When we lobby these institutions on your behalf, we need evidence of how they need to improve. That’s where you come in.
Report your story and help make our roads safer
Most of us have experienced bad driving. By creating a place to collect and share these stories, we will build the political will to change how society deals with bad driving.
