New Year, New You

As 2021 draws closer and a difficult year draws to end, we can look back at 2020 as the year where several aspects of our daily lives changed dramatically. Social distancing and face masks are now a normal site on our streets and in our shops, travel restrictions and lockdowns have become commonplace and we’ve all had to make sacrifices and play our part in keeping the virus at bay.


Despite so many changes in our way of life throughout 2020, one thing remained a constant – the speed limits. These did not change and are there to keep all road users safe. The road traffic laws also remained a constant throughout the year, with perhaps even more importance on compliance as we all needed to work together to reduce the strain on the NHS and allow them to focus on combating the effects of the Coronovirus Pandemic.


As we approach the start of a new year, we don’t know what we may have to face as a society. But one thing we do know is that GoSafe will continue to enforce the speed limits, encourage compliance, engage with the road using public and try to change attitudes and behaviours as we continue with our work of making Welsh roads safer for everyone.


So, whether you are a driver, motorcyclist, cyclist, horse rider or pedestrian; by doing the little things, you can make a big difference to your own safety and the safety of others on the roads of Wales.


January is a time for new beginnings and new promises. Why not make a promise to be a safer a driver your New Year resolution for 2021?


  • Drive to the speed limit
  • Wear a seatbelt, no matter how short or familiar the journey
  • Think, is that call or text really that important?
  • Be aware of your surroundings and expect the unexpected
  • Allow a safe distance between your vehicle and a cyclist as you overtake


GoSafe’s strategic aim is to make Welsh roads safer and to reduce casualties and fatalities. By playing your small part, you will make a big difference to the safety of our roads.


As we have been saying throughout December, we don’t want your money, we want to make Welsh roads safer. We enforce in the right place, at the right time, for the right reason and would rather record zero offences at our sites.


Think about the way you drive, do the little things and help make 2021 a safer year on the roads of Wales!
