Barnsley Road Safety Campaign Begins

Monday November 19 2012

A ROAD safety campaign to encourage locals to be safer drivers has launched today.

Representatives from South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership are at Peel Square in town today, speaking to locals and pushing the message to lower your speed.

A spokesman said: "Most collisions are preventable and involve factors like driving too fast or overtaking dangerously, driving whilst using mobile devices, driving on drink, drugs or while tired, failing to belt up or even most commonly as a result of not properly concentrating or paying attention on the road."

The roadshow includes a driving simulator as well as the chance to test out police breathalyser kits.

What do you think could be done to make Barnsley's roads safer?
