What is Arrive Alive?
Arrive Alive was launched by the North Wales Road Casualty Reduction Partnership at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd in October 2001. The aim of the campaign is to make the roads of North Wales safer by encouraging people to keep within the speed limits, reducing collisions and, consequently, reducing the number of people killed and injured.
Arrive Alive is a partnership involving all 6 North Wales local authorities, Crown Prosecution Service, Her Majesty’s Courts Service, National Public Health Service for Wales, Welsh Assembly Government and North Wales Police.
Which roads are targeted?
All routes within the scheme are analysed and are identified as high-risk roads i.e. roads which have a significant number of collisions and casualties and where speeding is a problem. Fixed or mobile safety cameras will then monitor these roads. There are now 61 routes targeted by the Arrive Alive partnership. All these routes are publicised and signed; all vans and fixed cameras are highly visible and mobile camera locations are publicised on a weekly basis via the local media and this website under the schedule section.
The programme is not about raising revenue, it’s about saving lives. Careful drivers who adhere to the speed limits will not fund the scheme; those who are caught exceeding the speed limit will not be stopped, but will be notified by post. All monies raised from the campaign can only go to fund additional cameras; members of the partnership cannot use it for any other purpose other than the Arrive Alive safety camera campaign.
