Road Safety: A new supercar for Merseyside Police

Senior officers from Merseyside Police’s Matrix have taken delivery of a new supercar to help the roads policing team in their ongoing work to promote road safety.

The new car, an Alpine A110 GT, has been loaned to the force for a year, and is custom branded in police livery. It will be used at events across Merseyside to spread awareness of the force’s drive to reduce the number of road deaths and serious injuries on the roads.

Sergeant Garreth Berry, who organised the loan of the vehicle, hopes it will encourage people to engage more with road safety: “We really wanted a way to get people more interested in the things that are going to keep them safe on the roads.

“We recognise that learning how to check your vehicle is ready for the road, and being reminded to do it, is probably not the most interesting thing in the world, but through these checks and changing driver behaviour, we can all play our part in saving lives and reducing the number of collisions on our roads.

“I love bringing innovation into the force – so I’m really excited about this car, and it does look pretty fantastic in its police livery. The team and I are really looking forward to promoting all our road safety demonstrations and campaigns with it this year. We’ll be putting all the demos out on our Roads Policing channels and bringing it to community events throughout the year. It’s a great way to get people to come over and have a chat – which is when we can hopefully get some road safety guidance in.”
