Police draft in more translators for TT 2019 road safety

'Keep Calm' slogan returns to encourage sensible driving

The police's road safety campaign will see more foreign translators assist in 'widening the message' for TT 2019.

After a single fatality outside of racing last year, the 'Keep Calm' slogan has been retained to promote the sensible and safe use of Manx roads.

It will be seen in French, German and Spanish in locations around the Island.

The campaign also ensures visitors travelling by ferry have access to multilingual materials urging caution prior to arrival.

It comes in spite of data released by the Department of Home Affairs, which revealed Manx residents were the main offenders on the roads during TT last year, closely followed by those from the UK.
