Latest News Leicestershire Police launches Share the Road campaign - Leicestershire Police and the Road Safety Partnership has today (Tuesday 4 June, 2019) launched a brand new road safety campaign encouraging all road users to respect each other.
The initiative known as, ‘Share the Road’ focuses on every type of road user, from rambler and horse rider to motorist and cyclist. It aims to reduce the number of traffic collisions and foster mutual respect among all those who use the roads.
PC Shaun Gent, from the Safer Roads Team said: “Now is a good time to launch the campaign because we tend to see a rise in road traffic collisions over June and July as more people are out and about during the lighter evenings and warmer weather. This is very much an educational campaign which is looking to change the way that people behave on the roads, rather than simply punishing people. This will be reflected in our operational work."
Lord Willy Bach, Leicestershire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, added: “Public highways are just that, public. They are there for everyone and we should all respect every road user’s right to travel in safety. This campaign will help to get that message across.”
Life size cut outs of every road using community have been created and will be displayed on notoriously dangerous routes. The safer roads team will then assess road behaviours and respond appropriately. Show support for Share the Road by placing one of our campaign car stickers on your window – available from your local police station.
