Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion said: “I hear regularly from residents across West Mercia about road safety concerns. Building on the successful relaunch of the campaign in Herefordshire, I have identified key areas to visit following correspondence where the public can have their say.
“At the heart of my Safer West Mercia Plan is a commitment to make roads safer in West Mercia as it’s a sad fact that too many people are killed or seriously injured on our roads.
“Each roadshow event will bring together key partners and West Mercia Police to ensure residents have a platform to have their voice heard and play a key part in making change in the community.”
Superintendent Steph Brighton from West Mercia Police said: “Protecting people from harm remains a key priority for us, and our ongoing work to achieve safer roads is a 24/7 commitment.
“Engaging with our communities and working alongside our partners to address local road safety concerns is an important part of this work. Our operational Road Safety Team will be supporting Roads Focus events and they look forward to meeting members of the public to talk about issues that are affecting their local area.”
