THIS Road Safety Week (21-27 November), Specsavers in Stroud are partnering with Cotswold BMW Motor Group to raise awareness and check the local communities’ eyes along the High Street. Customers and passers-by are invited to come down to the store on Saturday 26 November and see if they can read a number plate of a BMW i8 from 20m to check their eyes are fit to drive.

With sight-related accidents also costing £33m annually Specsavers in Stroud, an official partner of Road Safety Week, is calling for the quarter of drivers that have not had an eye examination in two years to visit the store.

Road Safety Week 2016

The Road Safety Week 2016 theme, Make the Brake Pledge, is about people all over the country understanding six key things they can do to protect themselves and the people around them, and reduce emissions and pollution from vehicles. The six Brake Pledge points are: Slow, Sober, Secure, Silent, Sharp and Sustainable.

A word from the store director 

Riz Choonara store director of Specsavers Stroud said: ‘We would be delighted to see the local Stroud community come down to the store on Saturday and have their vision tested. Our team will be there answering any questions you might have relating to Road Safety Week and it’s a great chance to ensure you are being vigilant in your eye care.’
