New WSCC ‘Road Safety’ Facebook Page

The Road Safety Team at West Sussex County Council have set up a new Facebook page to help deliver important Road Safety messages to its residents, as well as the wider public who also use the roads of West Sussex.

By creating this Facebook page, the Road Safety team will be able to support their partner’s campaigns happening throughout the country, write specifically about seasonally related topics, provide advice to support all modes of transport and much more – essentially delivering a whole wealth of important and much needed Road Safety information. Ultimately, the aim is to help reduce the Killed and Seriously Injured (KSI’s) statistics on the roads of West Sussex (and beyond), by delivering as much information and advice as possible.

If you are interested in keeping up to date with Road Safety issues, or have any questions you wish to ask, please go to https://www.facebook.com/RoadSafetyWSCC and follow this page! Thank you for your support.

Keep safe on the roads.
