Cumbria Constabulary has reappointed TTC Group to continue running the National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme (NDORS) across the county.
NDORS was introduced into Cumbria in 2009 when TTC Group trainers began education courses for motorists and motorcyclists who had committed motoring offences. Hundreds of drivers and riders have since attended courses on speed awareness, driver alertness and the Rider Intervention Development Experience (RIDE).
Des Morrison, TTC Group operations director, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to continue our partnership working on behalf of Cumbria Constabulary. We always aim to go the extra mile to deliver excellent educational interventions.”
The number of people killed or seriously injured on Cumbria’s roads last year fell to its lowest level since 2000 with 30 deaths and 164 serious injuries compared to 53 deaths and 437 serious injuries in the Millennium year.
Chief Inspector Terry Bathgate, of Cumbria Constabulary’s Criminal Justice Unit, said: “Educating the public on road safety is crucial in our efforts to reduce the number of people being involved in road collisions in our county. We are pleased to renew our contract with the TTC Group and thank them for their continued support.”
