‘Don’t gamble on red’, campaign says
A campaign aimed at warning motorists about the dangers of jumping red
light signals has been launched by the Surrey Safety Camera Partnership.
Don’t gamble on red will appear on billboards for four weeks during May and June to warn drivers that the odds are stacked against them. The poster will also be distributed to businesses, libraries, council offices, police stations, hospitals and doctors’ surgeries.
Partnership project manager, Duncan Knox, said: “It’s particularly worrying for the vast majority of drivers who are going about their business lawfully and could be killed or seriously injured by someone who gambles on saving a few minutes by jumping a red light.”
