THE Derbyshire Times’ campaign Respect on the Roads has stepped up a gear with the launch of fantastic car bumper stickers.
They are designed to reinforce the message behind our popular drive, aimed at stamping out road rage, inconsiderate driving and a lack of patience on our hazard-ridden, stress-laden highways.
The campaign is sponsored by Chesterfield-based car dealership firm Autoworld. Judith Barcroft, from Autoworld, said: “We’re delighted to support this campaign and assisting in the improvement of the motoring experience for drivers in North Derbyshire. Stickers are available in our service centre, if drivers would like to call in and collect one.”
The free stickers can be picked up at the Derbyshire Times’ reception, on Station Road, in Chesterfield, Chesterfield Tourist Information Centre and Chesterfield Library. In addition, they are to be handed out by staff at Chesterfield College and crews from Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service.
Derbyshire Times’ Group Editor Nicola Megson said: “We’re really impressed with these fantastic stickers.” So far, hundreds of road users have got in touch with us, with each and every person pledging to be more polite and more courteous on our roads – and more forgiving of drivers, cyclists, riders and pedestrians who make mistakes. If you would like to join them and back our campaign, send your name, hometown and, if you would like, why you’re pledging, to email@example.com, write to Respect on the Roads, 37 Station Road, Chesterfield, S41 7XD or via our website, Facebook or Twitter.
