Road Safety Appeal Over Reversing Cars In Harleston

A road safety campaign in Harleston has issued its latest warning to residents and motorists by reminding them about the dangers of reversing cars.

Harleston s Future and the town s police force have teamed up to help drive forward a community resolution to make streets safer for everyone.

In January Harleston s Future launched a new year resolution looking at community issues, starting with road safety.

And now the latest part of the Think For Each Other Community New Year s Resolution had been unveiled as Harleston s Future has teamed-up with the police to take the spirit of the resolution through the rest of year.

The new year launch was followed in February by the first general message, Pedestrians Think for Drivers Drivers think for Pedestrians .

And now the resolution is highlighting the dangers of people trying to beat reversing cars by nipping across behind them, especially in car parks.

To show the dangers of walking behind reversing cars a mock accident was created with Norman Hart, chairman of Harleston s Future, being run over by Carol Wiles.

Mr Hart said the mock accident was designed to emphasise just how hard it is for drivers going backwards, especially in car parks, if pedestrians and other drivers nip behind them at the last minute.

He said: In tight spaces, it s very important to be patient and give drivers room to complete their manoeuvre.

PC Jim Squires, beat manager for Harleston police, has given his seal of approval to the campaign.

He said: When a vehicle is reversing people should wait as the driver has a lot to look out for.

Thinking about the other person s position goes a long way to make our streets safer and a more friendly and pleasant experience.

Harleston s Future is a community group concerned with the social, economic and environmental well-being of the town and its community.

It launched its original resolution message to coincide with the New Year s Eve celebrations in Sydney.
