ROAD safety officers have been touring Suffolk with a display van to promote The Journal and Suffolk Roadsafe's Save A Life campaign.

With the van due to visit venues with campaign information until Christmas, road safety officers have been handing out publicity material while also being on hand to talk with residents.

On Friday, the tour reached Lowestoft town centre and road safety officer Daryl Fraser told The Journal: “This is the first session in Lowestoft for a while and we'll be coming back again next month and December. What has been apparent today from responses we've had from people is that speed and not wearing seatbelts are major issues - and those that have spoken to us have been interested in the statistics as people don't realise the numbers.”

The latest casualty figures which have been recorded in Suffolk are: calendar year 2007, January to October 10, fatal 28, serious 198. Current month up to October 10, fatal 0, serious 9. Calendar year 2008, recorded KSI casualties, January to October 10, fatal 24, serious 275.
