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 in September.
TISPOL, the European Traffic Police network, have initiated this day after figures for fatalities on the continent’s roads reached over 25,000 last year.
Surrey and SussexIn Surrey and Sussex, 84 people died in collisions in 2016. To combat this, Sussex Safer Roads Partnership (SSRP) and Surrey’s DriveSMART are combining forces for a high-visibility day of action on the 21st of September throughout the counties. Working closely with partners in the Fire Services and local authorities, we are aiming to encourage all road users to think about their performance on the highways, and how this can be improved for their own and others’ safety. The ultimate goal is to have no one dying needlessly.
Get InvolvedTo 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.
