Cheshire Police to deliver road safety messages at CarFest

 

Cheshire Police will be on hand for this year′s CarFest to speak to spectators about road safety.

The motoring event, which is held in aid of Children in Need, takes place from 2nd to 4th August at Oulton Park Race Circuit.

Cheshire Police will share a stand with Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service as well as Road Safety teams from Cheshire East and Cheshire West and Chester councils.

The stand will include the ‘Think′ car, a badly damaged vehicle which was involved in a collision in which the driver was killed. The vehicle is used as a platform to illustrate the potential consequences of drink driving.

Road Safety Officer David Murray said: "CarFest provides an excellent opportunity for us to engage with motorists and promote safer, more responsible driving.

"We always receive positive feedback from the public when attending events such as this and encourage anyone attending the festival to come over and speak to us."

This year will be the first time that motorcycles will be on display at CarFest and police will be promoting safe riding and encouraging other motorists to "think bike".

Cheshire Police are currently running an enforcement operation in partnership with North Wales Police which focuses on motorcycle safety.

Operation Caesar II provides a high policing presence across the county in a bid to reduce the number of motorcycle casualties.

As part of the operation, officers will be stopping and engaging with motorcyclists who commit moving traffic offences such as speeding and dangerous riding as well as anti-social offences such as excessive noise.

They will also be dealing with other road users who endanger the lives of themselves and others.
