We Are Supporting Project Edward

Sussex Police are urging road users to pledge their support towards September’s Project EDWARD (Every Day Without A Road Death) campaign to save lives and reduce death and injury on roads across the county.

Project EDWARD, set to take place on Wednesday 16 September 2020 and championed by ROADPOL (European Traffic Police Network), aims to raise long term awareness of road safety and better driving.

Supported by Sussex Safer Roads Partnership, Sussex Police will be focusing on the ‘Fatal Five’ – drink or drug driving, mobile phone use, not wearing a seat belt, inconsiderate driving and speeding, which are the five common causes of serious and fatal collisions.

Roads policing officers will provide high-visibility patrols across the county on the week beginning Monday 14 September 2020. Across the week, there will be road safety educational messaging being delivered, with enforcement carried out by dedicated patrols throughout the road networks of Sussex.

To keep up to date with road safety information and advice, members of the public can visit www.sussexsaferroads.gov.uk and follow @SussexSRP on Twitter.
