Did you know that five people are killed every single day by something we already know how to cure? Our roads are dangerous places, where hundreds of deaths and serious injuries take place every week.  Why not go along to one of our public events that we are running in support of Road Safety Week across our County?

We are also running a County wide programme of events specifically for school children at Primary and Senior Schools in Canvey Island, Colchester, Maldon, Harlow, Thurrock, Southend, Chelmsford, Great Dunmow, Corringham, Tendring, Shenfield, Braintree, Brentwood and Epping. The programme consists of pedestrian walks for reception and Year 5 children, Ghost Street Presentation for year 8 and 9 children, which is a ‘survival guide’ for teenage pedestrians and Level 1 and 2 Bikeability for Year 5 and 6 pupils.

To accommodate young drivers we are also running Young Driver Presentations at Chelmsford College. The presentation covers “the fatal four” behaviours under our No excuse campaign.  The four behaviours are speeding, not wearing a seat belt, using a handheld device while driving and drink/drug driving.

One small change, let’s drive fatalities down together – no excuse for poor driving.

Make your pledge at mysmallchange.co.uk, the more pledges we have the safer our roads will be.
