Welcome to Merseyside Road Safety Partnership
Merseyside Road Safety Partnership was created in 2007 to combat the rising number of deaths and serious injuries in Merseyside.
Merseyside Road Safety Partnership is a collaboration of Merseyside Police, Local Authorities, Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, and Merseytravel. The partnership is also supported by Highways England, North West Ambulance Service, and the Police and Crime Commissioner’s office. Our aim is to ensure the safety of all road users while travelling in and around Merseyside. We do this through providing guidance, education, adopting technology that saves lives and also by working with the people of Merseyside.
Since being established, we have seen positive results and a drop in fatalities and serious injuries on the roads. We believe the key to our success lies in engaging with, involving and empowering all road users so they can make the right decisions.
When people learn to share the road, they share the responsibility and ultimately save lives.
However you use the roads, this site provides guidance and practial safety advice, as well as the latest news about how we help keep Merseyside safer.
What is Merseyside Road Safety Partnership?
Merseyside Road Safety Partnership is made up of the Merseyside councils, public services, transport partners, and most importantly, the Merseyside community.
We work together, sharing information, undertaking road safety initiatives and hosting events. Our efforts have already seen a reduction in the number of people killed or seriously injured across Merseyside.
In 2006, 770 people were killed or seriously injured on Merseyside’s roads. Something had to change. In 2007, the Merseyside Road Safety Partnership was formed to make that happen.
Through a combination of engineering, enforcement and education the number of people killed or seriously injured in 2010 was reduced to 511. The number of people killed was reduced from 62 to 22. We continue to develop initiatives, introduce engineering solutions and undertake enforcement activities. We believe no one should be killed or seriously injured whilst using the roads.
