Support European Day Without A Road Death

 

project_edward2017_mainAll road users are being asked to support European Day Without A Road Death, known as Project EDWARD writes Geraldine Herbert

 

Launched in 2016, Project Edward is designed to enourage all road users to reflect on their behaviour and attitude.

After all, driver behaviour remains the most important barrier to progress as we approach 2020 and its reduction targets.

Drivers are unwittingly or sometimes knowingly putting other road users in so many ways, perhaps by speeding, drink-driving, not wearing a seat belt, using the phone while driving, using vehicles they have not kept roadworthy, parking their cars on bicycle lanes, blocking pedestrian crossings, not turning on their lights or engaging in risky manoeuvres.

2017’s day of action is Thursday 21 September

To support Project EDWARD, road-users are being asked to make an online pledge to be a better, safer driver on www.tispol.org/edward.

Project EDWARD is supported by all 30 TISPOL member countries (TISPOL is the European Traffic Police Network), and a growing number of well-known brands and road safety organisations have pledged to work with TISPOL to promote the messages of EDWARD as far and wide as possible.   We hope that, with support from colleagues and partners across Europe, Project EDWARD will be a high-profile way of reminding everyone that there is a great deal of hard work going on across Europe towards 2020 casualty reduction goals – and beyond that, too.

 

 

To get more information and make your pledge to make the 21st September 2017 a European Day Without A Road Death please see the TISPOL website, www.tispol.org.
