European Day Without a Road Death

We're supporting European campaign

Project Edward Hilltop PS visit September 2019

We are supporting Project EDWARD (European Day Without a Road Death), an annual awareness-raising initiative run by TISPOL (European Roads Policing Network) which aims to get all road users to work together towards zero road deaths.

Latest figures show an average of 70 people are killed on roads across Europe each day with about three deaths each week in Scotland. 

To help raise awareness of the initiative, Project EDWARD's official branded vehicle has embarked on a European 'road trip' and is set to visit a number of Scottish locations on its travels.

The tour visited Scotland on 23 September and culminates in Dublin on the 26th - Project EDWARD Day.

It stopped off at Hilltop Primary School in Airdrie where pupils worked with officers from Police Scotland talk to local drivers about road safety issues.

Council Leader Jim Logue also pledged the council's support to the Project EDWARD initiative.
