Project Edward launches 2020 road safety awareness week

Project EDWARD (Every Day Without a Road Death) campaign launches its road safety awareness week with the 2020 theme centred around Driving For Work.

The campaign – a collaboration between the Association for Road Risk Management (ARRM), the UK police, and Driving For Better Business (the Government backed Highways England programme) will commence its annual road trip on Monday 14 September running until Friday 18 September.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the physical road trip will be replaced with a ‘virtual’ week-long event, speaking to road safety specialists across the UK from police forces and academics, to employers who manage those who drive for work. Topics of discussion will explore driver behaviour, driver distraction, blue light awareness, driving fatigue, mental health, drugs and alcohol, tyre safety, and business benefits, to name a few.
