PCC Devon and Cornwall

Devon and Cornwall’s PCC, Alison Hernandez, is the national road safety lead for the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners. She is asking politicians, campaigners and the emergency services to unite in their call for drivers to take extra care so fewer lives are lost and serious injuries caused in the region. The OPCC is supporting the Honest Truth charity with a range of initiatives and campaigns across the region.

Ms Hernandez said: “Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are wonderful places to live and work but our safety casualty statistics make for grim reading. For every death on our roads a family is torn apart and lives are ruined, yet tragically so many of them occur because of a simple error that might easily have been avoided, people driving while tired, sending a text or going just a few miles an hour too fast. With a few simple changes and a collective effort between emergency services, local authorities and driving educators I am positive we can make great strides in making our region a safer place for all road users.”
