Project EDWARD the European Day Without A Road Death is now just days away
Project EDWARD (European Day Without A Road Death) is an awareness campaign that aims to bring casualty reduction and road safety to the forefront of people’s minds for a day. This year it is on Wednesday the 19th of September.
TISPOL, the European Traffic Police network, are coordinating this day after figures for fatalities on the continent’s roads reached over 25,000 last year. In Great Britain there were over 25,000 serious injury collisions and over 1700 fatalities. Sussex had over 1000 serious injury collisions and 54 people died.
To support this day and the work carried out by Sussex and Surrey Police, East Sussex and West Sussex Fire and Rescue Services, and local authorities, members of the public can sign up to the pledge, committing to become a better driver and encouraging friends and family to do the same and make our roads that little bit safer for all.
