Welcome to Episode 4 of the Project EDWARD podcast.

For this episode we’re pleased to be taking an in-depth look at the MORSE safer roads initiative that’s funded by the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion. MORSE aims to reduce the number of road traffic offences being committed on the roads throughout West Mercia (a large area consisting of Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire and Telford) – and to make those roads and communities safer for everyone.

We hear from John Campion, as well as from Keith Chance, Deputy Chief Officer for Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, who nare a key partner in the delivery of MORSE.

Another partner is the charity YSS, whose operations manager Dave Andrewartha explains the methods used to bring about changes in the driving behaviour of MORSE service users – two of whom give us the benefit of their experiences going through the scheme.
