Mott MacDonald’s passive safety expert makes donation to RoadPeace

Andy Pledge, Mott MacDonald’s passive safety expert presented a £1300 donation to Amy Aeron-Thomas, Director of charity, RoadPeace, the UK national charity for road crash victims, at the annual Passive Revolution seminar held in London. The donation made a poignant point, as although the passive revolution aims to reduce fatalities caused by roadside columns, signage and barriers, still up to 10 people die in road crashes every day in the UK. RoadPeace is dedicated to supporting road crash victims.

At the seminar delegates were provided with updates on European road safety data, regulation and trends as well as introduced to new products and their inventors. The passive revolution was brought to the UK in 2004 and this year’s event was supported by Mott MacDonald, InterRoute and RCS.

Andy Pledge who also organised the conference said, “It’s really important that the Passive Revolution journey continues to evolve so that road injuries and fatalities that are caused by roadside objects are minimised. Education and enforcement will always continue to be very important in improving driver behaviour, but we will endeavour to provide a crash friendly environment through engineering, for when things go wrong and a car unexpectedly goes off the road.”

Amy Aeron-Thomas, Director of RoadPeace said, “I’m delighted to be included in this very important event and of course the donation is of big help to our charity too. The money will be used for our helpline support and advocacy service, including provision of information based on the practical experience of hundreds of cases."
