The Lancashire Road Safety Partnership began in 2001 as part of the Department for Transport’s National Safety Camera Programme with the principle aim of helping achieve the Government’s 2010 casualty reduction targets.
Ten years on and the 2010 targets were met and exceeded but the number of people killed and seriously injured on Lancashire’s roads is still too high.
The government produced a new Strategic Framework for Road Safety in May 2011 which set out the role of Government in contributing to Road Safety. In line with this, Lancashire Road Safety Partnership’s ‘Towards Zero” strategy is working to reduce road casualties across the county.
The campaigns we run will cover road safety topics with an extra emphasis on vulnerable road user groups.
