Since the Go Safe Road Safety Partnership was formed in 2009 we have delivered a number road user education projects alongside publicity and enforcement campaigns. The campaign material developed by Go Safe Glasgow is detailed below and will be available to download soon.
Drink driving campaigns tend to become high profile during the early summer and festive periods, however drinking and driving is a year-round problem. It accounts for 5% of all road casualties and in 2011, killed or injured nearly 10,000 people in the UK as a result of someone driving whilst over the legal limit.
The partnership’s first campaign looked at the issue of speeding. In 2007/8 a community survey highlighted road safety and in particular speeding as a high priority concern within our communities. Research has shown that the vast majority of drivers adhere to the speed limit and that some may exceed the limit occasionally.
