Prioritising road safety
Road Safety is one of the most common issues local residents raise with me and the Police and Crime Commissioner team. Since 2014, the number of people killed or seriously injured has fallen by 20% but still over 1 person per week is killed on our roads.
If elected I will continue to prioritise addressing the four causes of road deaths – drink and drug driving, speeding, mobile phone use and incorrect use of seatbelts – by maintaining or increasing the number of enforcement vehicles, working with local Community SpeedWatch groups, and promoting mutual respect for all road users.
