Drink or Drive. NEver both.

Welcome to the Sussex Safer Roads Website

Making our roads safer for all isn’t just about speed camera enforcement – road safety education plays a huge part in changing attitudes and behaviours.

Here in Sussex, educating our road users starts in primary school with pedestrian and cycle training being offered by East Sussex and West Sussex County Councils, as well as Brighton and Hove City Council.

As young people start taking to the roads under their own power, we offer the New Driver Awareness or New Rider Awareness workshops free of charge to help those just starting out increase their skills for a lifetime of safer travel.  We’re also just starting a really exciting pilot called Graduate, which is seeing us working with driving instructors to deliver micro-lessons within structured driving lessons. 

The SSRP also works closely with our schools and colleges to deliver workshops, presentations and even theatrical experiences to bring road safety to life in a fun, interesting, way.

One of our key strategic priorities is reducing the number of collisions experienced by those on scooters, mopeds or motorcycles.  For this group, we run BikeSafe throughout Sussex and also Biker Down, which teaches valuable road safety skills should the worst happen and a biker needs to be kept safe.

For Sussex-based businesses, we’re on hand to help them improve their road risk policies and remind their drivers about speeds, use of mobile phones and so on – for free through the COSTS project.

And, of course, we offer the Speed Awareness Course for those drivers detected speeding at the lower end of the threshold. 

Road Safety is about more than just enforcement – and here in Sussex, we’re proud of the educational products that we can offer our residents from the time they’re born until the time that they retire – and beyond!
