TT safety campaign launched
The TT 2009 road safety campaign, 'Stay Alive, Stay Alert', was launched last week.
The campaign illustrates the consequences and aftermath of a serious road accident. All but one of the images are genuine accident scenes from previous TT festivals. The poster, featuring a deceased rider with a yellow motorbike, was staged with actors but based on police photographic records and using a real crash bike.
David Anderson, minister for transport, said: “Although some of the images may be difficult to look at, we feel that it is important for people to see real accidents scenes and how a split second can affect lives so dramatically.
“The aim of this campaign is to discourage reckless riding and driving by changing public attitude towards road safety. Ultimately, we want to prevent accidents like these happening again.”
