Roe Valley road stats ‘encouraging’

Figures just released demonstrate no young person was killed or seriously injured on the roads in the Limavady Borough area during 2010.

This is in marked contrast to 2006 when 20 young people were either killed or seriously injured (KSI) on the roads in the Borough, some 50% of the total number involved in a KSI collision, said Linda McKee, DPP Manager.

PSNI Inspector Stephen Haslett said: “These figures are extremely encouraging, no-one wants to see the carnage caused by any road traffic collision and young people are to be commended for driving more responsibly on the roads. The Police in association with its other partners will continue to use an enforcement, education and engineering approach”.

Ms McKee, said, “We all have a part to play in ensuring this trend continues”.

Adrian Mullan Chair of Limavady Custom Cruisers continued: “Limavady Custom Cruisers through partnership continues to use innovative approaches to engage, educate, and improve driver skills and is being given credit by the Police for their part in achieving this dramatic turnaround. The club is open to any young person interested and meets on Thursday nights, at the Greystone Centre, NWRC at 19.30 hours”.
