Scottish Road Safety Targets to 2020

Targets

Scotland's road safety vision is that there will be:

"A steady reduction in the numbers of those killed and those seriously injured, with the ultimate vision of a future where no-one is killed on Scotland's roads, and the injury rate is much reduced".

This is known as 'Vision Zero' and is the main ambition and focus for the Dumfries and Galloway Road Safety Partnership when setting strategic and operational plans.

Scottish Road Safety Targets to 2020

Road Safety Targets to 2020 are set by the Scottish Government and included within Scotland's Road Safety Framework to 2020 document. These figures are endorsed by Dumfries and Galloway Road Safety Partnership and show what we want to achieve by the year 2020, compared with the average Scottish Figures for 2004/08.

Progressing Towards Vision Zero

A mid-term review of the Framework to 2020 document was undertaken in 2015 by the Scotland Government. The mid-term review identified three key priority focus areas for further consideration:

These three key priority focus areas are placed at the centre of the Dumfries and Galloway Road Safety Partnership Strategic Plan allows us to form robust operational objectives to meet focused outcomes aligned with the Scotland Government's vision.

The Scottish Government believes that Vision Zero is an ambitious vision and one capable of being shared by all.

Dumfries and Galloway Road Safety Partnership drives forward the aim of Vision Zero through joined-up working and its commitment to the Framework until 2020 and will work across the 5E's to further reduce road deaths and serious injury across the region.
