Safe Systems Approach to Road Safety in Bristol

29 March 2015

Bristol City Council produced this 10-year plan to reduce the number of collisions and casualties on the city’s roads and at the same time improve health and wellbeing.

The plan is based on the principle that almost all road deaths and injuries are preventable and lives and health should not be compromised by mobility.

The plan says fear of injury currently deters many people from making sustainable travel choices, and says figures from 2013 show that 55% of people killed and injured on Bristol’s roads were pedestrians and cyclists.
