Roads Focus – road safety campaign

The PCC and Worcestershire County Council are working together on a joint campaign to improve road safety.

‘Roads Focus’ aims to give members of the public the ownership to share their views on the county’s highways. The campaign will get underway, with events across the county, on Monday 19th until 23rd November to coincide with the national Road Safety Awareness Week campaign.

These road shows will see the Commissioner and the Council start implementing some of the changes that were suggested by more than 400 members of the public in a recent online survey.

The plan for the week is as follows:

 

Monday 19th November – 4pm until 6pm – Wolverley Church Hall, Kidderminster, DY11 5TH

Drop in and talk to the PCC, local councillor and local police about your concerns.

Tuesday 20th November – 4pm until 6pm – Bishampton Village Hall, Broad Lane, Pershore, WR10 2LY

Drop in and talk to the PCC, local councillor and local police about your concerns.

Wednesday 21st November – 11am until 2pm – Catshill Methodist Church, Golden Cross Lane, Bromsgrove, B61 0LG

Drop in and talk to the PCC, local councillor and local police about your concerns.

Thursday 22nd November – 11am until 12pm – Complimentary road safety awareness course (jointly run by TTC and the West Mercia Police Roads Policing team), Feckenham Village Hall, High Street, Feckenham, Redditch, B96 6HN

This is a great opportunity to become a better driver and brush-up on your driving knowledge. Can you remember what every sign means? Can you tell what the speed limits are without signs? Can you spot hazards? Do you know how many people die on Worcestershire roads every year?

During this session you will get the opportunity to listen to some officers from the West Mercia Roads Policing team, as they give you an insight into how you can prevent yourself from becoming a statistic in West Mercia’s road traffic collisions. You’ll even come away with a certificate and a few freebies!

To register your interest, please email opcc@westmercia.pnn.police.uk.

Friday 23rd November – 3pm until 4pm – Hanley Swan Primary School – installation of new signs to prevent speeding and dangerous parking

Following the week of action, the campaign will be on-going and will incorporate cyclical and seasonal events, as well as continuing to encourage comments and engagement from the public regarding their concerns with the roads of Worcestershire.
