The United Kingdom might now have the safest roads in the European Union, but the number of people dying or being injured on our roads is still too high.
In 2012/13 there were 10 people killed and 130 people seriously injured on roads across Cleveland.
Road traffic collisions are preventable, as many of them are caused by people driving:
- too fast or overtaking dangerously
- whilst using a mobile
- under the influence of alcohol/drugs
- whilst tired
- without using a seatbelt
We are supporting the road safety campaign being run by Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit throughout June called ’The Morning After’ Could Be Hidden Killer, warning that drinking the night before can leave motorists unfit to drive the next day. You can read the press release here.
