Road Safety Plan 2017 - 2020
The Scottish Government and members of Dumfries and Galloway Road Safety Partnership are committed to the outcome of safer road travel in Scotland for everyone. The Scottish Government's Road Safety Framework to 2020 "Go Safe on Scotland's Roads Its Everyone's Responsibility" sets out the framework for improving roads in Scotland until the end of the decade and beyond. It includes the vision, aims, commitments and targets for reductions in road deaths and serious injuries.
The ambitions will not be realised without the help of delivery partners, communities and the road users themselves. Therefore, the Dumfries and Galloway Strategic Road Safety Plan 2017 - 2020 builds on the Scottish Framework with data and intelligence taken from previous road safety plans, as well as the Scottish Government's "Road Safety Framework Mid-term Review", and provides focus on targets and on the three nationally identified priority focus areas (speed, age and vulnerable road users) to reduce accidents and casualties on Dumfries and Galloway's road network.
The Strategic Plan provides a detailed action plan for all members of the partnership until 2020. The action plan will be based on a series of commitments which are grouped under 5 Es, these being Education, Engineering, Enforcement, Encouragement and Evaluation:
