Vulnerable Road User Campaign: 19 – 25 June 2017

Between Monday 19th and Sunday 25th June, in conjunction with our Roads Policing colleagues, Lanarkshire Division of Police Scotland will be engaging with the public to educate, enforce and positively influence road user behaviour.

There will be various strands to the campaign which will include:

  • educating children and young people walking and cycling on roads
  • motorcycle safety
  • speeding
  • inconsiderate driving behaviours

 Our aim is to reduce road incidents.  As such, we wish to engage with as many people as possible.  Working with our community planning partners, we would like to cascade the message and encourage children, young people and adults alike to take responsibility for their own safety and to be mindful of the hazards walking and cycling on the roads present.

You can find out more about what we’re up to on Facebook and Twitter using the hash tag #GoSafeRoadSafe.

 

With your help, we can reduce the number of children, young people and families affected by road collisions.  A Scotland where no one is seriously hurt or killed on the roads is our ambition.

 

Our partners at http://www.roadsafetyscotland.org.uk and http://www.cyclingscotland.org are excellent sources of information and resource.

 

Over the week, our local problem solving team officers will be liaising with local schools and delivering appropriate advice to staff, pupils and parents alike.

 

Lanarkshire Division appreciates the assistance the local authority gives as a partner to keep people safe in North Lanarkshire
