The Fatal Four

 These are the most common causes of road accidents. Take the advice and stay safe on the road.

1 - Speed Limit

Inappropriate speed

Drivers and riders who are travelling at inappropriate speeds are more likely to crash 

2 - Drive Texting

Using a mobile phone whilst driving

Using a hand-held or hands-free mobile phone whilst driving is a significant distraction.

3 - Seat belts

Not wearing a seatbelt

Seatbelts are designed to retain people in their seats, and so prevent or reduce injuries suffered in a crash.

4 - Drink Drive

Drink/drug driving

Often it is an innocent person who suffers, not the driver who is drink/drug driving


Concerned about speeding in your area?

Community Speedwatch (CSW) is a national initiative where active members of local communities join with the support of the Police to monitor speeds of vehicles using speed detection devices.
