Posted on Friday 22nd September 2023 in Business, Cyclists, Drivers, Education and Training, Pedestrians, Speed

Officers from the Casualty Reduction Team at Sussex Safer Roads Partnership (SSRP) worked in partnership with Sussex and Surrey’s Commercial Vehicle Unit to provide a morning of enforcement and education. The engagement was held on the A259, Brighton Road – on Friday 22nd of September, between 08:00-12:00. The 2023 NPCC: Vulnerable Road Users (VRU) Campaign took place from 11th – 24th September 2023. The purpose of this campaign was to reinforce key messaging in relation to the hierarchy of road users and increasing awareness. Commercial vehicle drivers have an obligation to be careful of the safety of other road users. Recent changes to the Highway Code created a hierarchy of road users, with those who could do the most harm bearing the greatest responsibility for road safety. That means commercial vehicle drivers have specific personal responsibility for ensuring the safety of those more vulnerable than themselves.
