Low-income families are most at risk of road accidents, it has been claimed.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents' (RoSPA) Social Factors in Road Safety report has warned that factors such as the location and earnings of families can affect the likelihood of being involved in a road accident.

Duncan Vernon, road safety manager at RoSPA, said: "Building road safety into everyone’s priorities and policies is therefore an inescapable step to reduce the inequalities in injury."

Mr Vernon added that road safety is a public health issue and it should be integrated into public health at all levels, noting that more professions and sections of local government could be engaged to ensure it is part of their policy process.

RoSPA recently urged families across Northern Ireland to stay safe over the Halloween period, warning that fireworks can cause severe injuries if they are used irresponsibly. It encouraged parents to ensure young people are aware of such hazards.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801479510-ADNFCR
