New road safety policy out for consultation
The county council has drafted a new road safety policy, which aims to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on the county’s roads by 50 per cent by 2032.
The long-term aspiration is to follow the ‘Vision Zero’ approach, which is recognised around the world and aspires to stop all traffic fatalities and severe injuries by 2050, while increasing safe and healthy travel for everyone.
To help move towards this aspiration, our road safety strategy 2022-2032 aims to deliver safer roads, healthier streets and lower speed limits where people live.
An eight-week consultation period inviting people to give their views on the draft policy started on Monday 18 July and runs until 11 September 2022.
