Project aims to cut county's accidents
15/07/1998 in NEWS
Lancashire Police is joining forces with the county council to launch the 'Victoria Project'. Meetings are already taking place with the Home Office to discuss the campaign, which not only targets driver speed, but a spectrum of other details, from driving attitude to vehicle maintenance.
To reduce driver speeds there will be intensive policing, complemented with hard-hitting television adverts. The project was first carried out in Victoria, Australia and resulted in speeding in 30mph areas dropping from 75% to just 3% within three years.
