EAC supports #ProjectEDWARD

26 September 2019 European Day Without A Road Death

As signatory of the European Road Safety Charter the European Autmobile Clubs asbl is happy to be partnering with Project EDWARD, which was initiated by the European Traffic Polic Network TISPOL. We highly recommend you to follow #ProjectEDWARD on the campaign's social media channels, in particular Twitter and Facebook, and get the dedicated experts' valuable insights into topical road safety issues.

Let's join hands and make roads safer in and beyond #Europe! The EAC has already made its #ProjectEDWARD road safety for 2019:

• Remind my family, friends and colleagues to take extra care on the roads.

• Put my lights on for safety.

• Drive as safely as I can and follow the rules when behind the wheel or riding a motorbike or bicycle.

• Be extra vigilant and attentive to the needs of pedestrians, cyclists, children, older people and horse riders.

• Drive at speeds that are both legal and safe.

• Carry out proper safety checks on my tyres.

• Pay particular attention when driving near schools, and where there are lots of children.

• Never drive after drinking alcohol or taking drugs/medicines that could impair safety.

• Look as far ahead as possible and not tailgate other drivers.

• Always wear my seat belt and ensure that everyone with me wears theirs.

• Not use my mobile phone while driving.

• Ensuring I am not distracted by anything inside or outside the car, or inside my head.

• Set a good example to my passengers by driving calmly and safely.

• If I’m a passenger, make sure that the driver is fit and legal to drive.
