“Facts are stubborn things, but statistics are pliable.” Mark Twain

September 16th, 2018|Uncategorised|

Have you ever wondered how many children’s lives are saved in car crashes by the use of a correctly fitted car seat in the UK? In our line of work, we’d love to know the answer too - but would it surprise you to know that it isn’t actually recorded? Following a road traffic collision [...]

One of the most common comments we get at Police enforcement events goes something like this… “ You want to get down to my children’s school and have a look at the amount of children in wrong child seats, if they have any at all!” We also hear lots of parents say to their young [...]

Wishing won’t keep you safe

January 16th, 2018|Uncategorised|

This blog was written on Wednesday 10th February and is dedicated to the driver who sustained fatal injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and colleagues. I have been sat in on the M6 for 6 hours up to now. Less than a tenth of a mile in front of me are [...]

CAR CRASH TV

December 19th, 2017|Latest News, Uncategorised|

You may have heard the phrase “Car Crash TV” it basically means television programmes that show deliberately controversial, disturbing, or horrific material, that we don’t really want to see but we are compelled to keep watching.   It’s a bit of a sick phrase really when you think it through, in real life someone’s life has [...]

ONE IN THREE CHILDREN ARE FITTED INCORRECTLY IN THEIR CAR SEAT

October 24th, 2017|Uncategorised|

That's 1:3 children at risk right now on our roads. We have said so many times that there’s no point in having a perfectly fitted child seat and a poorly fitted child!

We’re all different – doing what’s right not what’s easy.

June 27th, 2017|Uncategorised|

Do you remember having the traditional school summer photo? Outside on the field, smallest children on the front row on the chairs, boys in the middle, and tallest children on the back row stood on a PE bench? I had one ambition, throughout my school photo modelling career – and that was to get on [...]

February 8th, 2017|Uncategorised|

At this moment in time, there’s a lot of misunderstanding about the “new law” on child car seats, so here's the information to stop the confusion! It isn’t actually the UK Road traffic law that is changing but it will be affected because it is the European safety standard that is being revised. This will [...]

Are we there yet? Invest in your stress!

January 31st, 2017|Uncategorised|

Are we nearly there yet? We all dread those long journeys especially if we’ve got young passengers on board and it’s really tempting to download a film, or let them watch a DVD to keep them occupied. Although there is only so many times you can listen to the theme tune from Peppa Pig before [...]
