The objective of the European Day Without A Road Death or Project EDWARD is that no one should die on the roads of Europe on Wednesday 19 September. In the days leading up to Project EDWARD, the aim is all road users to think – even for just a few minutes – about the risks they face, the risks they may pose to others and how they can go about reducing those risks. The #ProjectEDWARD can make a significant contribution towards further reducing road deaths and serious injury.
Drivers are unwittingly or sometimes knowingly putting other road users at risk in so many ways, perhaps by speeding, drink-driving, not wearing a seat belt, using the phone while driving, using vehicles they have not kept roadworthy, parking their cars on bicycle lanes, blocking pedestrian crossings, not turning on their lights or engaging in risky manoeuvres.
