Pledge for no Inishowen road
INISHOWEN motorists are
being asked to play their part in reducing the risks
on the road today, European Day Without a Road
The continent-wide initiative called 'Project
Edward' is supported in Ireland by the Gardaí, the
Road Safety Authority (RSA) and local authorities
among other agencies.
The initiative has been organised by the Traffic
Police network in Europe (TISPOL) and its aim is for
no-one to die on the roads of Europe today,
Thursday, September 26, 2019.
The faces of 143 people who were
killed on Ireland’s roads last year.
TISPOL Acting General
Secretary, Aidan Reid said:
"We are proud that Project EDWARD has become a high
point of the road safety calendar.
This year our focus is this simple concept: ‘We’re
all more vulnerable than we think’. So we are
calling on all road users to play their part in
reducing the risks they face – and the risks they
pose to others."
"On Edward day, please:
• Be aware of others using the road.
• Slow down.
• Don’t drive if you have been drinking alcohol or
• Don’t use your phone while driving.
• Be particularly mindful of pedestrians, pedal
cyclists, motorcyclists and other more vulnerable
"We invite everyone to support #ProjectEDWARD by
signing the pledge at
www.projectedward.org and by using social media
(#ProjectEDWARD) to share a ‘zero’ image for no road
deaths – on Thursday and on every day.”
