“Safer driving impacts everyone in our county and we are dedicated to doing all we can to reduce the number of lives lost on our roads, by making them safer for all.”
Our approach to this priority is evidence-based and the Safe and Social Driving Coordinator will help deliver the plan working closely with colleagues in the fire and rescue service, police, voluntary and education sectors. The role is to research, create, train and deliver education programmes that will reduce the number of people being injured on our roads, whether they drive, ride, cycle or walk.
This begins with the education of young road users and runs right through to prevention work with older road users. Everything we do is driven by evidence and it is clear that our efforts are working. Casualties in Gloucestershire have reduced by 57% during the past 10 years with 10,000 fewer people being injured on our roads.
Our commitments include:
- Intelligence-based tasking and co-ordination of police resources and staff
- Targeted road safety operations in areas of need
- A road safety academy which delivers training for our partners and communities
