Road Safety – Young Drivers Event

Yesterday we were joined by Surrey Police, Surrey Fire & Rescue Service, Project EDWARD and Kwik-Fit as part of the Project EDWARD Road Safety Week of Action.

Surrey Fire & Rescue and Surrey Police Officers provided education and engagement to young road users around safe driving practises and road/traffic laws.

Kwik-Fit provided demonstrations to students around under-bonnet checks, car maintenance and tyre checks.

It was a great event full of safety and education sessions for young drivers.

Project EDWARD (Every Day Without A Road Death) is the biggest platform for showcasing good practice in road safety in the UK. Managed by Projects Zero, it is backed by government, the emergency services, highways agencies, road safety organisations and British businesses. It promotes an evidence-led, ‘safe system’ approach – the long-term objective of which is a road traffic system free from death and serious injury.

The five components of the Safe System are:

  • Safe Roads – Safety-conscious road planning, design and engineering
  • Safe Vehicles – Promoting vehicles with collision avoidance & injury mitigation systems
  • Safe Speeds – Managing speeds to crash survival levels 
  • Safe Road Users – Deterring dangerous behaviour and ensuring compliance: education & enforcement
  • Post-Crash Response – Fast and efficient emergency medical help, diagnosis and care
