The Partnership’s Vision for Merseyside
The Merseyside Road Safety Partnership’s vision is to make our roads a safer environment for everyone. We believe this is a contributing factor to the successful growth of the Merseyside Region.
With all road traffic collisions, there is a significant emotional cost and considerable effect on all those involved and connected. In addition, there is a great financial cost and burden on the National Health Service (NHS) and other organisations.
Our target is to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured to 400 by 2020, and to keep on reducing it into the future. One person killed or seriously injured on our roads is one too many.
In order to reduce the number of casualties on roads in Merseyside, and improve progress on achieving our target, we focus on four specific road user groups:
However, that doesn’t mean we exclude ongoing activity in other areas. For example, reducing child pedestrian casualties is still a priority, and we continuously monitor issues around the region as they happen in order to re-focus our energy if and when patterns change.
