The Mayor of Solihull Joe Tildesley was one of a few select guests that joined hundreds of school children at a highly interactive concert with a road safety theme, designed especially for KS2 pupils from Birmingham.

Clock on to Safety is a road safety project created by DBS Law and brought to life as a concert by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Over three days, with the help of Birmingham City Councils Smarter Choices Team, thousands of young children from 50 local schools interacted with some of the world’s top musicians in a quirky concert featuring catchy tunes that demonstrates safe road use in a fun and memorable way.

After the event, which was also attended by representatives of the Police, Fire Service and Highways Agency, Councillor Tildesley said ‘I have never seen a group of children so enthusiastically involved with a road safety event. Both DBS Law and the CBSO are to be congratulated on this initiative and I very much hope they may be able to bring the performance to a Solihull venue.’

Angela Fitzpatrick head of personal injury at DBS Law said. “Having represented for over 25 years individuals and their families who have suffered from catastrophic injuries I know the devastating and life changing consequences of road accidents. I am proud that this project really does help make children in our community safer and road aware. It has been a tremendous success with over 2200 school children attending the event over 3 days. As a Solihull resident I am very keen to develop this further so Solihull school children can benefit from this road safety initiative and I am grateful for the support of the Solihull Mayor Joe Tildseley.”
