Reducing road casualties in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Many fatal or serious collisions on our roads can be linked to the 'fatal four', these being:

  • Excessive or inappropriate speed
  • Using handheld devices such a mobile phones when driving
  • Not wearing seat belts
  • Driving whilst impaired by alcohol, illegal drugs or prescribed drugs

By working to reduce the incidence of these potentially dangerous behaviours we can prevent people being killed or suffering from life changing injuries.
