    Story

    Recovery Operators risk their lives every day helping motorists in their time of need. Many workers have been killed or injured over the years whilst working on our motorways and major trunk roads. Smart motorways have made them even more vulnerable. The Recovery Industry Support Charity, RISC, are working with the Campaign for Safer Roadside Rescue and Recovery to lobby the Government to permit operators to use red flashing lights whilst stationary and in attendance at breakdowns in a dangerous location. It is proven that drivers pay more attention and slow down when red lights are seen compared with amber which are the only colour permitted at present. These workers need protection and any donation you can give will help with our work in achieving this change. Please help us to save lives.

      RISC have recently been informed by the Department for Transport that the off-road trials of Red Lights will begin shortly as soon as they have finalised the work specifications. The test is taking place at the request of the Secretary of State for Transport. We are hopeful this will be the finally obstacle to securing this long overdue change, but continue to ask for your support in order to keep up the pressure on government in the meantime.

      I was nearly killed one night on the M62 junction 25. I will never forget how lucky I was to survive. Unfortunately, not everyone does and that’s why I’d like to support this very good cause.
