New Road Safety Plan (2017 - 2020) Launched

The Road Safety Partnership is pleased to launch its new Strategic Road Safety Plan for 2017 - 2020 today 14 December 2016.

 Accompanying the new Plan is an Operational Plan for 2017. 

Launching the new Plan the chair of the Partnership, Hamish McGhie, said:

"On behalf of the Dumfries and Galloway Road Safety Partnership I introduce the Strategic Road Safety Plan 2017 - 2020 which provides a comprehensive and sustainable foundation for dealing with the many challenges we face on our regions road.

This plan recognises the many varied measures that have been implemented through the previous Road Safety Plan and seeks to enhance those existing measures through an effective and cohesive working partnership of all key road safety stakeholders.

As chair of the Partnership, I am encouraged to report that we have made great progress towards meeting the 2020 road safety targets as set by the Scottish Government, but we must continue to strive and where possible surpass the expectations set.  Every death and every serious injury is one too many.  We need to maintain the huge effort made by all partners.

It is the responsibility of every single road user in Scotland to make our roads safer and this is only achievable through the continued hard work of this Partnership in its commitment to and promotion of the 5 Es - Education, Engineering, Enforcement, Encouragement and Evaluation.

I believe that this Strategic Road Safety Plan will further improve the joint approach between our partner agencies and communities and we will continue to see good progress being made on the reduction of those killed or seriously injured in the years to come"
