Office Star to Launch Safety Campaign at The Mobility Roadshow
Date:6/19/2012

NORWICH, England, June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

A high-profile disabled actress and disability campaigner has put her name to a campaign to improve the safety of wheelchair users on the road.

Julie Fernandez disabled star of The Office will be at Constables Mobility's stand (TD8) at The Mobility Roadshow to launch the sled-testing e-petition being run by Disabled Motoring UK.

Disabled Motoring UK's campaign, which is supported by Constables Mobility and a number of other organisations, highlights the need for all converted vehicles to be sled tested and wants a change in legislation that will improve the safety of wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs).

It urges buyers of converted cars to demand sled-testing certificates - the only way to check a vehicle is as safe as possible. The campaign will also seek to change legislation so only 'sled tested' vehicles can be sold.

Julie Fernandez, who starred alongside Ricky Gervais in BBC TV series The Office, said: "I'm proud to be getting behind this campaign. When I first heard about it, I couldn't and still can't believe that sled testing isn't already a requirement for all converted vehicles. I'm really hoping that we raise awareness of the issue and that the e-petition receives enough signatures for the campaign to be discussed by the government."

Helen Dolphin, Director of Policy and Campaigns, for Disabled Motoring UK said: "We are really pleased to have Julie on board with our campaign."

The campaign is also being supported by ex-Eastenders' actor David Proud, vehicle converters: Constables Mobility; Lateral; Concept V1, disability press:  Ability Needs and
