Project EDWARD, Day 4 – 2022
Day 4 of Project EDWARD (Every Day Without A Road Death)! Sussex Safer Roads Partnership was joined by colleagues from; West Sussex Fire and Rescue and Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) Enforcement Team to speak directly to the public in Bognor Regis.
SSRP’s Casualty Reduction and Partnership Sergeant, Casualty Reduction Officer, Programme Delivery Officer and Communications Officer attend with the Engagement Vehicle and the ‘crash car’. Drawing individuals in to discuss behaviour on our road network, promoting best practise. We provided road safety literature and resources to all. Through discussions, we were able to resolve queries, provide advice and promote the importance of our Partnership.
West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service’s Watch Manager, Trainer/Instructor, Targeted Education, Intervention & Prevention colleague, Rich Poole attended the event and said:
‘Today we (WSFRS) supported the ever-proactive Sussex Safer Roads Partnership at the Project EDWARD(Every Day Without A Road Death) event at Sainsbury’s in Bognor Regis. As ever, it was very well organised and very well received by the public, even the damp British weather didn’t halt the much-needed delivery.
During the event we shared imperative road safety advice covering the fatal 5; Seatbelts, Drink/Drug Driving, Mobile phones, Speeding and Careless/ Inconsiderate driving.
We also shared important advice around tyre safety. It is even more important this time of year to check your tyres as the roads are often more slippery due to the leaves and cold frosty weather. Good safe tyres with plenty of tread and the correct pressures could prevent a potential collision, give greater control and also reduce the costs of motoring.
It is always a pleasure working with the Partnership, these events are very well organised and the team are knowledgeable and enthusiastic which benefits our customers, the public.
Thank you to SSRP and all involved including partners to make these events a success.’
