Working with road safety campaigner Ria Brisland to improve motorcyclist safety

Posted on: No Comments

This is a guest blog post from Ria Brisland. Ria has been campaigning since 2018, for better education for all road users on the vulnerabilities faced by motorcyclists.

This is her story.

On Friday 24 April 2015, I received a phone call that changed my life forever.

It was the day I learned my eldest son, Nick, had been killed in a motorcycle accident.

When something as tragic as this happens, the agony of it is suffocating.

Nothing makes sense anymore.

Carrying on

Eventually I had to make a choice to try to carry on with my life as best as I could.

"I’m looking for a recommendation for a driving instructor / driving school with their own cars." – PoPville

“Dear PoPville,

I’m looking for a recommendation for a driving instructor / driving school with their own cars. I am an adult (like, an old) but having lived in cities my whole life, have never owned a car, and I haven’t driven regularly in about a decade. I do need to do some driving coming up in the fall and was hoping to do some refresher lessons with a professional instructor.

I’ve heard great things about the former / current police officers who give driving lessons, but all their meeting points are not Metro-accessible, and you’re expected to have your own vehicle, which I don’t. A few year back I tried this and was a bit traumatized by a disinterested and rude instructor, so am hoping someone has a better idea. I’ve looked at the schools recommended by the DC DMV but one of the them is the traumatizing school, and another hasn’t responded to several emails.”

A former teacher now working as a driving instructor smashed a pubgoer in the face with a pool cue in a row over the table, a court has heard.

Kevin Lloyd launched the attack in his local pub then had to be ushered out of a back door as feelings among the other regulars ran high.

His victim was left with a cut about his eye which needed stitches.

Swansea Crown Court heard both men were in the City Bar in the St Thomas area of the city the night of February 9 this year.

Ashanti-Jade Walton, prosecuting, said a “winner stays on” pool tournament was being held in the pub but after the victim won his game Lloyd – who was due on the table next – said he did not want to play him.
