In December 2015, the government published a Road Safety Statement, setting out its vision, values and priorities for bringing down the number of people killed and injured on British roads. A new progress report from the Department for Transport charts how the individual aims and strategies which made up the original vision have been taken forward and what has been achieved.
The accompanying ministerial statement states that 15 of the 23 short term actions have been delivered, including three where the original objectives have been exceeded.
The range of actions listed in the progress report are grouped under five main topic headings:
- Road Safety Management
- Safer Roads and Mobility
- Safer Vehicles
- Safer Road Users
- Post-crash Response
