Kid Again campaign running
The Kid Again campaign is aimed at 17 to 25 year-olds and focuses on the consequences of speeding, driving while unlicensed or uninsured, or under the influence of drink or drugs.
LRSU's Education and Safety Camera Partnership teams joined forces to target this high-risk age group. Bus shelter advertising and bus mega rears are running during January.
Cycling campaign in production
A new campaign reminding drivers to take extra care when looking out for cyclists is in production.
Due for release in March 2010, the campaign follows on from the award-winning Moonwalking Bear concept and will include posters, cinema and TV adverts.
LSCP to install average speed cameras along major urban route
The LSCP has begun installation of average speed cameras on a stretch of the A13 from Canning Town to the Goresbrook Interchange. The system is the first to be used in the UK to enforce the speed limit along a major urban road.
Nearly 500 collisions, including 3 fatal and 34 serious incidents, were recorded on the stretch of road between 2006 and 2008. Half of those collisions were caused by speeding.
The new system is expected to halve the number of people killed or seriously injured along the road and improve traffic flow when it goes live this summer.
