Are you driving 'blind'?

… Improved Road Safety

Between 9am-2pm on Wednesday 20 November, drivers visiting the Esso Petrol Station on Malmesbury Road, Cepen Park North in Chippenham can have a free vision screening check.

This is because Haine & Smith have joined forces with Esso and lens manufacturer Essilor Ltd as part of the national Think About Your Eyes campaign to help reduce the estimated 3,000 casualties a year where poor eyesight is a key factor.

Gareth Millard from Haine & Smith Chippenham says: “A recent study revealed 10 per cent of drivers in the South West struggled to read road signs and one in five said that as a passenger they have worried about their drivers’ vision.

“This is a great opportunity for people to become more responsible drivers and I would encourage anyone in the area to pop in and take advantage of the 30-second check. It may just save lives.”
