The National Council of Women of Great Britain recalls its strong resolution on road accidents in 1936, and views with increasing concern the continuing number of accidents involving loss of life and injury which occur on the roads of this country. Whilst fully appreciating the beneficial effect of the National Road Safety Campaign which has as its main purpose the education of the public in road safety, the National Council of Women urges accentuation of propaganda, particularly to the adult members of the public, and in addition that there should be greater emphasis:–
- on parental responsibility for the safety of the school child;
- on provision of safe places for children to play;
- on the personal responsibility of every road user.
