When I got the call from my sister to say my dad had died in a collision with another vehicle, it was devastating. There was no warning, no chance to say goodbye. This happens every day in the UK, and I want to use the anniversary of his death to launch a fundraising campaign to support the families of people killed or seriously injured on the road.
RoadPeace is the national charity for road crash victims in the UK. Its vision is a world where road danger is not tolerated and where road crash victims receive justice and compassion.
They provide information and support services to people bereaved or seriously injured in road crashes. They also engage in evidence-based policy and campaigning work, to get justice for victims and to improve the system’s post-crash response.
Their work touches many aspects of road safety, from prevention and danger reduction to better investigations and inquests, appropriate prosecution and sentencing, and fair compensation and rights for victims.
