MGP 2010 Road Safety Campaign Launched 19 August 2010

STAY ALERT, STAY ALIVE

The Department of Infrastructure officially launched the MGP 2010 road safety campaign yesterday (18th August 2010).

This year’s MGP campaign follows on from the campaign which ran for TT and is a joint initiative with the Isle of Man Constabulary. The campaign features a series of hard-hitting images of real crash scenes from Police archives with the strap line of ‘Stay Alert, Stay Alive’. The strap line presents a concise and hard hitting message which, coupled with the campaign imagery, should leave a lasting impression on residents and visitors alike.

Minister for Infrastructure Phil Gawne MHK said:

‘The key message from the Road Safety Team to local and visiting motorcycle enthusiasts is to enjoy the Grand Prix but make sure that you stay safe on the Island’s roads, ride to the conditions and don’t drink and ride ’

The Mountain Road will remain two-way for the duration of the Manx Grand Prix unlike for the TT when the Mountain Road was made one-way due to the high number of visitors on the Island. It is also important to remember that there are prohibited and restricted areas around the MGP course which are marked with clear warning signs. Spectators are required to keep clear of these areas for their own safety and that of the racers during MGP races and practice.

The Road Safety Team promotions vehicle will be present at a number of locations during the MGP period including the Vintage Motorcycle Club event at Jurby on Sunday 28th August, Grandstand, Douglas on Wednesday1st September and Ramsey Classic Sprint on Thursday.

Inspector Mark Britton, Head of the Roads Policing Unit says:

“Officers from the Roads Policing Unit will be deployed to conduct enforcement activity. As with the TT our levels of prosecutions increase during the MGP. The surest way of avoiding prosecution is not to exceed the speed limits. I would echo the comments of Minister Gawne that people need to take care whether they are riding a motor cycle or driving any other kind of vehicle. The mountain road is two way during this period and I would ask that people take notice of this. “STAY ALERT – STAY ALIVE” is the key message and in recent weeks we have seen a rise in collisions of a serious nature. Additional officers are being drafted in to the Roads Policing Unit from other parts of the Isle of Man Constabulary to cope with the increases in demands”
