Mindfulness for road safety

Around 40% of road traffic collisions involve “failure to look properly” due to distractions.

Distractions aren’t just physical but can be due to our emotions or what we are thinking about.  

This short video by local filmmaker, Sarah West shows how distractions can cause dangerous driving and how simple mindfulness techniques can help keep you safe on the roads.

Before you drive 

Take a few moments before you drive to use our simple mindfulness techniques.

  • Stop – take control
  • Breathe in, breathe out – when you breathe out sigh a little
  • Do it again

Taking a few moments before you set off on the road can make all the difference to your ability to focus on the road environment.

Listen to our mindfulness practice

We have developed a simple practice to try before moving off, to help you to focus better on the roads.
