Road safety is clearly a significant issue for people and is frequently raised as a concern by members of the public across West Yorkshire, with approximately 40% of respondents naming it as a key priority in our Police and Crime Plan consultation. It covers a range of issues from inconsiderate parking to dangerous driving all of which can have a major impact on people's lives. This is another area that requires more than just the police, and I will continue to work with all partners including councils, highways agency, and charities to improve safety on our roads.
Road Safety Priority Plan
So that we can all understand more about what we are doing together and want to do together to deliver on our priority areas of work we have developed our 'Priority Plans'.
These plans will be refreshed and renewed and are work in progress but we will report on our delivery against these Priority Plans in public facing Community Outcomes Meetings.
We want to demonstrate the difference we are making in our communities but we also want to know what else we could be doing to keep people in West Yorkshire safe and feeling safe.
