Help us reduce collisions and casualties on Essex roads
SERP has repeated its call for all road users to commit to making small changes in their behaviour to help reduce crashes and casualties across Essex, Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock.
The SERP Small Change Pledge asks people to sign up to make a small change to how they drive, ride a motorbike or bicycle, walk and cross roads, in a bid to improve their safety and the safety of others.
Behaviours that people can sign up to include: driving at an appropriate speed; cycling in a considerate manner; committing to never drink or drug drive, or use a mobile while driving; to always wear a seatbelt; and for drivers to look out for motorcyclists and cyclists.
The Small Change Pledge was launched at the official SERP launch on 17 September.
Nicola Foster, SERP’s Chairperson, said: “We’re asking people to get behind this initiative and show they are committed to reducing road casualties by signing the pledge.
“People can pledge to do all or one or more of the behaviours we’ve highlighted on the pledge board, or even write their own pledge so it is more appropriate and personal to them.
“Just thinking about how you can use the road in a safer and more considerate manner has the potential to make a big difference to the number of crashes and casualties.
“We’re also asking people to help us spread the message by printing off the pledge board and taking it to work and other places where they meet with friends and colleagues, and/or by sharing it on Facebook and Twitter.”
