Council Launches Road Safety Initiative for the B3212

More than 200 animals on Dartmoor are being given reflective neckbands to make them more visible to vehicles and help prevent road traffic collisions.

The bands will be issued to famers of 80 Dartmoor Ponies and 150 cattle following a successful funding bid to the Vision Zero South West Road Safety partnership.

The idea is just one of the measures in the initiative led by Dartmoor Forest Parish Council who say collisions and animal deaths have been a major concern for several years.

The Council successfully bid for £6,306 from the Vision Zero South West ‘Call For Ideas’ scheme which will pay for neckbands for animals specifically along the B3212 road from Peek Hill to Princetown.

An additional Vehicle Activated Speed sign and improved signage along the stretch of road have also been funded by the initiative.

The scheme is being officially launched at a special event on Friday, June 24 at 10am outside the Princetown Visitors Centre.
