Two years ago, Brake volunteer Iris Yee's partner Lidia Zoetemelk was killed by an HGV while riding their scooter. To mark the anniversary of her death, Iris shares a little of her experience of being bereaved by a road crash. She also writes about her experience at www.griefontheroad.wordpress.com.
The Brake Blog
In its campaigning work, Brake often highlights personal stories kindly provided by volunteers bereaved or injured in road crashes. However, it is less often that we hear from people guilty of causing those deaths and injuries. This post is an anonymous testimony from a driver convicted of causing the death of a cyclist by careless driving. Details have been removed to protect the identity of the victim and the driver.
In the aftermath of the General Election, Brake's campaigns manager Gary Rae takes a look at the prospects for meaningful road safety policy change in the new parliament.
