A death-free day on Europe’s roads?

[ September 20, 2016   //   ]

Safety campaigners want tomorrow (Wednesday 21 September) to be the first “European Day Without A Road Death”, otherwise known as Project EDWARD.
The project is supported by all 30 members of TISPOL, the European Traffic Police Network, and will highlight all the work being done by organisations to try and halve the number of road deaths in the EU by 2020.
It is hoped that Project EDWARD will encourage all road users to reflect on their behaviour and attitude, as this remains one of the most important barriers to cutting the casualty count.
UK organisation Brake, though, believes more can be done than just focusing on driver behaviour. Strong legislation and leadership from authorities and governments can play a much more vital part, it says.
