Road Safety Fund
The third round of the Road Safety Fund is now open. The Road Safety Partnership is overseeing the third round of bids on behalf of the Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner. Bids are welcome from community groups, the public, the voluntary sector and businesses. The bids should be innovative and help to address and solve local road safety problems in communities across Hertfordshire and in particular the partnership would like to receive bids supporting road safety research and education within deprived areas.
To help groups who want to apply for funding, a Road Safety Information Event has been organised by the Commissioner and the Hertfordshire Road Safety Partnership on 11 October 2018. The event will take place at Hertfordshire Fire & Rescue’s Longfield Training Centre in Stevenage.
Our schemes and campaigns
A programme for young people about the risks out and about on the road.
In the average time it takes to read a text on the motorway, a driver will have travelled the length of a football pitch without looking at the road.
- Drink and drug driving - any amount of alcohol affects your ability to drive.
- Mobile phones - you are four times more likely to crash if you are on the phone while driving.
- Seatbelts - you are twice as likely to die in a crash if you don't wear a seatbelt.
- Speeding - a main factor in fatal road collisions is speed. Lose control at speed and you have very little time to react.
- Country roads - nearly two thirds of all fatalities happen on country roads, with unexpected hazards hidden around the corner.
