Somerset to adopt A Safe System

11 February 2018

Somerset County Council is seeking views on a new draft road safety strategy  - ‘Safe Roads in Somerset’ to embrace a ‘Safe Systems’ approach to deliver the council’s ambitious vision that no road user should be killed or seriously injured on the county’s roads.

Cllr John Woodman, Somerset County Council’s cabinet member with responsibility for road safety, said: “Whilst it is pleasing to see the number of people killed on Somerset roads decreasing, even one death is one too many.

“This is why we are consulting on our new road safety strategy. We want to take positive action and continue to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured on Somerset roads.

“Every road user can play a part in improving road safety and we look forward to receiving feedback on our plans.”

The full draft strategy – which explains the Safe System approach in more detail – and a consultation summary document are both available on Somerset County Council’s consultation website
