Drivers urged to check their vision – the ‘Sharpen Up’ resource shows the dangers of driving with aimpaired eyesight.

A new interactive e-learning resource to highlight the importance of making sure your vision is up to scratch before getting behind the wheel has been launched.

Developed by the U.K. road safety organisation Brake and Specsavers, the interactive resource, called ‘Sharpen Up‘, aims to highlight the importance of eye tests for drivers.

With statistics showing people with impaired vision are much more likely to be involved in a road crash, Brake deputy chief executive Julie Townsend says good eye health is vital for safe driving.

“It’s vital for drivers to get their eyes checked professionally at least every two years – eyesight can deteriorate rapidly without you noticing.

“Our new ‘Sharpen up’ e-learning resource shows people the dangers of driving with poor eyesight, encouraging them to make that vital trip to the opticians.

“The resource is a powerful tool that shows that if you drive, it’s not just your own health and safety that you are risking if you neglect to get your eyesight checked, but also the lives of the people around you.”

Access the resource online now at www.brake.org.uk/sharpenupinteractive.
