Could you/Would you?
– I am thankful to those that do.
I’m also not ashamed to say that I cried when reading this blog.
Perhaps when you read the ‘longest walk’ it will touch your heart and give you an understanding that behind the uniform are real people who care.

Sadly, as I write this comment I am sure somewhere in the UK another Officer is at this very moment walking up to a families door with news that will change their life forever.

Constable Chaos - UK Police Blog

It’s only been a few weeks since I posted on here about the number of RTC’s we attend where a major contributory factor to the injuries received is the lack of wearing seat belts – see http://constablechaos.wordpress.com/2012/02/27/clunk-click-every-trip-please/

Yet this in the early hours of this morning, the Chaos shift had to turn out to yet another scene of mangled debris and destruction. This time we were met by the sight that we see far too often, and is so easily avoided.

The driver of the only vehicle involved in this collision was out of his car by the time we arrived. By out, I mean ejected ….. through the windscreen and onto the not so soft, fluffy and forgiving tarmacadam surface of the carriageway.

Sadly, there was nothing that could be done for this guy – he was dead by the time we arrived; probably (and hopefully) he’d died instantly…

One thought on “

  1. It made me weep when I wrote it !!! and I’ve done that walk several times before – it’s never gets any easier. The whole point behind me writing this was that if it makes one single person realise it isn’t ‘uncool’ to wear a seatbelt and it saves their life one day – job done !
