The countdown has begun to a new initiative to cut death and injury on Europe’s roads.

Project EDWARD (European Day Without A Road Death) was devised by TISPOL, working alongside the European Commission, politicians, policymakers and road safety partners across Europe.

Wednesday 21 September 2016 has been chosen as the first EDWARD day. The target is that no one should die on the roads of Europe on this day. Of course, every day should be an EDWARD day, and TISPOL believes that with a collaborative approach, a significant contribution towards further sizeable and sustained reductions in road death and serious injury can be made.

National governments, private organisations, public agencies, charities, schools, colleges and universities, as well as individuals, are invited to make the pledge to support Project EDWARD, and do their bit towards reducing risk and improving safety for everyone who uses Europe’s roads.

Visit the Project EDWARD website for more information and to make the pledge.
