Project EDWARD #ProjectEdward
European Day Without A Road Death
On behalf of An Garda Síochána, the Road Safety Authority (RSA) and the TISPOL Organisation who represent the Traffic Police network across Europe, we would like to make you aware of, and get your support for, Project EDWARD, which aims to be a European Day Without A Road Death and takes place on Wednesday, the 21st September 2016.
Everyone has a vested interest in making the roads safe. Drivers for example, are unwittingly or sometimes knowingly putting themselves or other road users at risk in so many ways, perhaps by speeding, drink-driving, not wearing a seat belt, using the phone while driving or engaging in other risky manoeuvres. But it’s not just drivers who are at fault. Many passengers, motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians increase their risk levels by choosing to ignore basic rules or cutting corners in relation to their safety.
Project EDWARD will encourage all road users to reflect on their attitude and behaviour.
The goal is that no one should die on the roads of Europe on Wednesday 21st September 2016. We believe that Project EDWARD can make a significant contribution towards further sizeable and sustained reductions in road death and serious injury not just on the day, but also beyond.
Whether you represent a government department, a private organisation, a public agency, a charity, a school, college or university, or whether you simply care as an individual, please join us and make the pledge to support Project EDWARD, and do your bit to reduce risk and improve safety for the people who use our roads.
Project EDWARD is supported by all 30 TISPOL member countries, and a growing number of road safety organisations have pledged to work with TISPOL to promote the messages of EDWARD as far and wide as possible.
We want everyone to feel part of this and to know that small actions lead to big improvements. Everyone can make a difference.
