This year’s hard-hitting Road Safety campaign, “Miss Me?” prompts road users to consider the realities of dangerous driving or riding – reminding road users that although they may have missed the TT festival, their families will miss them more if they are involved in a collision.
It is also a reminder that life continues around the races, urging road users to take care on all roads including the course as there could be the usual farm, construction or commuter traffic around the bend ahead.
Superintendent Steve Maddocks said:
’The TT has returned to our Island after 3 years and we want to ensure that everyone who visits and lives on our Island is safe. We’d ask people to please familiarise yourselves with the roads and their layouts, adhere to the signs and ride safely and within your limits. Enjoy everything the TT experience has to offer, but please be able to go back and tell your family and friends your stories.’
Inspector for Roads Policing Unit, Neil Craig added:
‘We want everyone to enjoy the TT for all the right reasons, and so we are urging motorists to help us keep the roads safe for everyone.
‘Where possible, I’d also like to urge drivers to plan ahead during the festival period due to the increased number of people who will be using our roads, and the inevitable congestion that is likely to occur at peak times as a result of this. Please allow yourself sufficient time to safely get to where you need to be.’
