A new campaign will see free road awareness sessions hosted across Worcestershire in a bid to improve driver behaviour. 

Working in partnership with West Mercia Police, including the local policing team, councils and council highways teams, the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) John Campion's Roads Focus campaign will see drop-in sessions take place across the county throughout January. 

The driver awareness sessions being run by TTC will give the public the opportunity to improve their knowledge of the Highway Code and overall road behaviour. 

Residents will also be able to voice their concerns and issues to the PCC and partners. 

PCC John Campion said: "I hear regularly from residents across West Mercia about road safety concerns. Building on the successful relaunch of the campaign in Herefordshire, I have identified key areas to visit following correspondence where the public can have their say. 

"At the heart of my Safer West Mercia Plan is a commitment to make roads safer in West Mercia as it's a sad fact that too many people are killed or seriously injured on our roads. 

"Each roadshow event will bring together key partners and West Mercia Police to ensure residents have a platform to have their voice heard and play a key part in making change in the community."

The drop-in sessions will take place between 6pm and 8pm on the following days: 

Wednesday, January 10 - The Cube, Albert Road North, Malvern, WR14 2YF

Tuesday, January 16 - Wythall (location TBC) 

Wednesday, January 17 - St George's Hall, Bewdley, DY12 2EQ 

Thursday, January 25 - The Lifford Hall, Broadway, WR12 7BU 

Two free driver awareness sessions will also be taking place between 6pm and 7.30pm on the following days: 

Tuesday, January 23 - Via Zoom 

Wednesday, January 31 - Via Zoom 

Spots can be booked through Eventbrite. 

Superintendent Steph Brighton, from West Mercia Police, added: "Protecting people from harm remains a key priority for us and our ongoing work to achieve safer roads is a 24/7 commitment. 

"Engaging with our communities and working alongside our partners to address local road safety concerns is an important part of this work. 

"Our operation Road Safety Team will be supporting Roads Focus events and they look forward to meeting members of the public to talk about issues that are affecting their local area."
