A DAY earmarked as one which should be accident-free on West Yorkshire's roads is looming fast.
Next Sunday has been designated as Safer Roads Day and the aim is simple - no-one should be hurt on the roads that day.
Anyone seen driving in a potentially unsafe or dangerous way will be pulled over and given advice by police.
The day has been arranged by the organisation behind speed cameras - the West Yorkshire Casualty Reduction Partnership.
The partnership's head of public affairs, Philip Gwynne, said: "Everyone has a part to play in making the roads and the communities alongside them safer and better places.
"By looking after ourselves and each other on the roads, every one of us can make a difference - will make a difference - on Safer Roads Day and every other day."
He added: "Safer Roads Day is about asking all road users to take that little bit of extra care of themselves and those around them in an effort to bring about zero road casualties.
"Because driving at excess and inappropriate speed remains the single biggest cause of death and injury on local roads, all drivers are asked to respect the speed limits.
"If drivers do that, the single biggest cause of grief on the roads could be eliminated at a stroke."
West Yorkshire Casualty Reduction Partnership is made up of representatives from Kirklees, Calderdale, Bradford, Leeds and Wakefield district councils, West Yorkshire Police, West Yorkshire Health Authority, West Yorkshire Magistrates' Court Service and the Highways Authority.
