Neil and Luke came to the rescue of a motorcyclist and his passenger when they were line
marking in a carpark in Royston, Cambridgeshire.


The motorcyclist, Mr Griffiths explained, “I had a friend on the back of my bike as a pillion
and had become concerned as she was becoming unresponsive, I pulled into the car park at
the side of the road. I was unable to get her to respond to verbal communication.


In front of me was a Wilson Scott HGV with two men working on the markings of the car
park. I shouted at these men, and they immediately came to my assistance. I explained my
predicament to Neil, he told me he was a trained first aider and began assessing the
condition of my friend on the back of my bike, whilst Luke phoned for an ambulance.
I cannot put into words just how grateful I am to your guys, especially Neil who was calm,
collected, and effective. Had your guys had not been there I really do not know how I’d have
dealt with this situation.


They are a very good ambassadors for your company. Please be kind enough to give my
heartfelt gratitude and thanks to them both”.


Great work Neil and Luke, the team at Wilson and Scott are proud of you.

The RAC states that there can be a 44% increase in wet braking distance between car tyres having a tread depth of 1.6mm instead of the recommended 3mm.

Tyre tread depth and tyre safety checks | RAC Drive

Although the legal limit for cars is 1.6mm across the central 3/4 of the tyre, the RAC article indicates that most tyre and safety experts recommend a minimum of 3mm. This is because reduced tread depth lessens the ability of tyres to disperse water which increases braking distances and raises the risk of aquaplaning and loss of grip.

So, to reduce the risk of collisions remember “Do it at 3 not 1.6”.

Wilson and Scott are the longest established line marking company in the UK and are committed to the well-being of our customers and staff when they travel on the UK road network.

The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity is the only charity that provides emotional, physical, and financial wellbeing support to construction workers and their families. The charity does not receive public funding and is therefore totally reliant on the generosity of those within in the industry to help continue its vital work.

The charity has been delivering charitable support to the Construction Community since 1956. Founded by a group of gentlemen who had been attending a Ministry of Public Buildings and Works Exhibition on Tyneside, when they found themselves on the seafront at Whitley Bay.

Under the light of St Mary’s Lighthouse, they vowed to extend the goodwill they enjoyed at the show by starting something to unite and benefit the entire industry. From that day forward, the Lighthouse Club was formed to offer aid and assistance to ill or injured construction workers.

Wilson and Scott are the longest established line marking company in the UK and despite its envious safety record, are delighted to support such a worthwhile industry cause.
