Fleets and drivers urged to support this year’s Project EDWARD
Organisations and drivers across Europe are being urged to lend support to this year’s European Day Without A Road Death, which takes place on Thursday 21 September.
On average, 70 people still die every day on Europe’s road and the Project Edward initiative – devised by the European Traffic Police Network (TISPOL) and first run in 2016 – aims to raise awareness of road safety and reduce the number of people killed every day.
The project is supported by senior politicians, police chiefs, policy makers and road safety professionals as well as the European Commission.
TISPOL president Paolo Cestra said: “If everyone commits to making small changes, then the road safety improvements will be huge and we will achieve big reductions in the number of people who are killed or seriously injured. So please share our road safety messages on social media using #ProjectEDWARD, and sign the Project EDWARD pledge at www.projectedward.eu.”
