Published following research showing more than one in 10 people (12%) believe you should offer a drink or cigarette to a driver who’s in shock after an accident while just over one in 20 (7%) think you should try and move the person, which could cause more harm than help, the guide outlines practical skills for roadside response best practice.

Joe Mulligan, head of first aid education for the British Red Cross, said: “It’s important to act quickly after a roadside accident, and learning first aid can give you the knowledge and confidence to help in an emergency.

“First aid skills are simple to learn and easy to remember. There are plenty of ways to learn first aid with the British Red Cross. You can download our free first aid app, visit our website for educational videos, or book a course.”
