Devon and Cornwall road deaths in August ‘particularly high’ – BBC News
BBC News 4 days ago
The average number of fatalities across the counties was usually about four people per month, but it was “in excess” of 20 in August, police said.
As part of the initiative, 170 dashcams are being given out.
Project heads said the level of deaths was “particularly high” and they hoped the cameras would make drivers think before they made “stupid” manoeuvres.
On Monday, a convoy of emergency services vehicles travelled along the A38 in Devon to launch the new initiative and highlight the resources required to attend a serious road traffic collision.
The road trip was organised by the charity Project Edward (Every Day Without A Road Death).
