Police warning over Europe-wide scheme
10:00am Sunday 25th August 2013 in News
POLICE are warning drivers about their awareness in support for European speed awareness week.
As the European campaign started on Monday, August 19 and Cheshire police are warning agricultural drivers about their blind spot whilst advising road users about overtaking on country lanes.
In the past year Cheshire has seen 23 people injured in collisions involing agricultural vehicles.
‘Am I in Your Blind Spot’ a rural campaign launched by Cheshire Police looks at common road manoeuvers which can result in rural road accidents.
Sgt Rick Weaver of Road Policing said: “One of our priorities will be in the detection of excess speeding in rural areas; but we are also using the blind spot campaign to warn other road users about overtaking on country roads.”
Cheshire Police have posted footage of their blind spot campaign on Youtube for the public to view.
