The Story So Far

One of the groups most isolated by lockdown is also the most at risk on Gloucestershire’s roads, once lockdown lifts. That is according to Gloucestershire’s Older Drivers Forum, which suggests that drivers are more at risk of serious collisions as they age, due to the pressures added by the Covid-19 lockdown.

As England entered its second lockdown of 2020, The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner  worked alongside Gloucestershire Constabulary and Gloucestershire Older Drivers Forum as part of its commitment to Safe and Social Roads – a priority of PCC  latest Police and Crime Plan.

These groups have already hosted several FREE online webinars in the last nine months offering support to families concerned about the driving abilities of older relatives, or for those drivers feeling like they are losing confidence behind the wheel. These have all been very well attended.
