Road Safety fund

And to show his commitment, Sir Graham Bright publically launched a new Road Safety Casualty Reduction and Support Fund.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Partnership will manage bids into the fund with the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.

Sir Graham signed the declaration at a conference held by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Partnership at Huntingdon Race Course.

Speaking at the conference, Sir Graham said:

“Every year, between 30 and 35 people are killed on Cambridgeshire’s roads, leaving a trail of destruction behind for family, friends and colleagues. We want to use this money to influence the way people behave when they drive, cycle on or walk near roads.”
