Project Edward is THIS THURSDAY!

After months of preparation, meetings, tweets, blogs, pledges et all, PROJECT EDWARD is this THURSDAY 21st September 17.

We are all sincerely hoping that all the wonderful activities that have sprung from this brilliant idea, come together to make a difference this week.

After another weekend of pure carnage and abject misery on UK roads (no doubt replicated across Europe), we ALL need to work together to cut road deaths.

Police officers across Europe commence a week-long speed enforcement operation starting today (Monday 21 August). During the operation, co-ordinated by the European Traffic Police Network (TISPOL), officers will use a number of speed detection methods across all types of road. The purpose of the operation is to raise awareness of the dangers of speeding, and to remind drivers of the benefits for all road users of driving at speeds that are both legal and appropriate.

Officers from the police in Basel-Stadt caught five drivers under the influence of drugs. Because of the big event "Streetparade" in Zurich (about 1 million 'ravers'), a traffic control took place on the highway at the border crossings to Germany and France. 
The control took place together with the police of Baden-Wuerttemberg (Germany), the National Gendarmerie (France) an the Swiss Border Guard. The police looked specifically at the ability to drive, and had trained staff on site.
