Largs Specsavers is supporting Road Safety Week.

Five people die every day on the UK’s roads on average and someone is injured every four minutes, with drivers’ eyesight often playing a contributory factor.

That is why this Road Safety Week (November 16-22), road safety charity Brake has partnered with Specsavers.

Chris Leatham, store director at Specsavers in Largs says: ‘Having good eyesight is one of the most basic requirements of safe driving. It means drivers will be able to spot potential dangers, see pedestrians and other vehicles, read road signs and judge speed, distance and movement.

"This is why it is so important to have regular eye checks."
