Department of Transport launches Manx Grand Prix 2006 Road Safety Campaign 17 August 2006

On Saturday 19th August, the Department of Transport will start its Manx Grand Prix Road Safety campaign.

This year’s road safety promotion will build on the successful “Take iTT Easy” campaign designed for the TT Festival, with the intention of continuing to raise awareness amongst motorcyclists about road safety issues, encouraging them to ride well within their limits and to obey the road signs.

The campaign will include radio advertisements and newspaper articles over a two week period. The key message from the Department to local and visiting motorcycle enthusiasts is to enjoy the Grand Prix, to take it easy, and not to speed or drink drive.

Billboards and posters will also be placed around the Island and on the Manx Grand Prix course reiterating the message of safe driving. The campaign will feature an image of ‘Jo on his first bike, aged 6’, with the caption ‘Make sure you’re there to teach him – Take iTT Easy’.

In addition, the Road Safety Unit will be organising static displays at various locations over the Island with the unit’s promotional vehicle, everyone is welcome.

  • Sunday 27th August – Castletown Square. – During the Vintage Motorcyle Event
  • Monday 28th August Bank Holiday – Creg ny Baa Grandstand
