Preston Circus Fire Station Open Day

22nd December 2023 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

Sussex Safer Roads Partnership continues to support local events and national campaigns throughout the year. In December, we will be visiting various locations around East and West Sussex, discussing local concerns and sharing new information and resources. This includes reiterating key messaging relating to not driving or riding under the influence, as well as increasing visibility when walking, cycling, or horse riding. To support this, we will be providing hi-vis equipment and literature to members of the public, at Preston Park Fire Station Open Day on Friday 22nd December – hopefully see you there!

There are severe risks and penalties which will be faced if caught driving ‘under the influence’ combining drugs with alcohol is especially deadly since it has been found that drivers who have consumed both are 23 times more likely to be involved in a fatal collision than sober drivers.

New figures show the number of people killed in drink-drive collisions in 2021 reached a 12-year high. Published by the DfT on 27th July 2023, the data shows that between 240 and 280 people were killed in drink-drive collisions in 2021, with a central estimate of 260 fatalities. The estimate is the highest since 2009 and represents a statistically significant increase from 2020.
