Road safety is a significant issue for our communities and is frequently raised as a concern by members of the public. Road safety covers a spectrum of issues from inconsiderate parking to dangerous driving, but the number of people killed or seriously injured on our roads is a major concern. Nationally, almost 900 people lost their lives on our roads in 2019, with many thousands more seriously injured. I will work to improve the level of support provided to victims of road traffic collisions, and continue to work with local partners in the Road Safety Executive and Safer Roads Partnership to achieve a Vision Zero approach through education, enforcement and prevention.
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.
