Hertfordshire County Council Txtataxi campaign saves lives!
Drunk pedestrian fatalities have featured highly in Hertfordshire road safety statistics for a number of years and are of growing concern. On average 2-3 Hertfordshire pedestrians per year are killed as a result of being drunk and many more are seriously injured. In 2007 there were 48 drunk pedestrian casualties in Hertfordshire. For the past three years, the road safety unit has been trying to raise awareness of this issue and encourage Hertfordshire residents to find a safe way home.
