Saving lives

ACCIDENT PREVENTION
Put safety measures in at the Clyde
Warning signs so that someone else might think twice before taking risks
Ropes put onto safety belts so that if someone was in the water they can be pulled to safety and multiple throws if the belt drifted
More police presence and better monitoring of cctv at peak times

Why is this important?

My son drowned in the Clyde after a night out with friends just over 2 years ago
he made his way to the
Tradeston bridge to make his way home The bridge was cordoned off due to a storm
He climbed the cordon too near the waters edge and fell in and lost his life
I hope that the safety measures that I’m asking for will save a life
