Lincolnshire speed watch volunteers upping checks for road safety campaign
Volunteers in Lincolnshire's Community Speed Watch teams are being encouraged to take part in a road safety campaign this week.
Members of teams across the area will be at the roadside with their speed guns to join Project Edward (Every day without a road death) - with a week of activity starting from today.
The government-backed campaign brings together businesses, road safety organisations, highways agencies and emergency services.
Wednesday will also be the first ever UK-wide Safe Speeds Day - and the Project Edward team will be in Lincolnshire that day to raise awareness of the 'human cost of excessive speed'.
Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership's John Siddle said: "Project Edward is a national initiative where all road safety practitioners have a day of action, in Lincolnshire we are asking CSW teams to be out at some point during that week and take some photos we can Tweet out, across the county there will be increased activity around the Fatal 4 enforcement, speeding, impaired driving (drink and drugs) mobile phone use and non-wearing of seatbelts."
More information on the campaign can be read on the Project Edward site.
