Operation Carmageddon comes to Deal

Posted: 31/10/2008 13:11:45

A road safety event is to take place in Walmer, Deal tomorrow (Saturday 1st November) in a bid to help reduce road traffic collisions in the area.

Deal fire crews will be staging live crash rescue demonstrations at Walmer Green alongside road safety partners who will be on hand to offer advice and information about staying safe on Kent’s roads between 11am and 3pm.

This event is part of the multi-agency road safety campaign, ‘Operation Carmageddon’, which aims to educate people on the potentially horrific consequences of being involved in a serious road traffic collision, and to encourage drivers and passengers to be responsible for their own and others’ safety while driving.

Deal Fire Station Manager John Yore said: “Deal has several busy roads including the A258 and recently we have seen too many serious road traffic collisions, some sadly with fatal consequences.

“Kent Fire and Rescue Service is committed to working with its partners to raise awareness in Deal and the surrounding areas of the dangers we face on our roads and offer advice on avoiding becoming involved in road traffic collisions. We hope this event will go someway to driving down the number of local people killed or seriously injured in the area.”
