Road Safety Strategy

Safe travel is an essential component of life within Somerset, in an effort to help ensure that no human is killed or seriously injured as the result of a road collision the County Council has adopted a Safe System approach to road safety.

In a Safe System there is a shared responsibility for preventing injury, not just between road users and enforcers but also those that design, build and manage roads or vehicles. It is also essential that good quality post-crash care is available should a serious collision occur.

For details on how we aim to achieve this please see the Road Safety Strategy document for 2017-2026. To download a copy of the strategy click here.
