"To reduce the number of people who are killed or injured on the roads in Dumfries and Galloway".
The Scottish Government's Road Safety Framework to 2020 "Go Safe on Scotland's Roads Its Everyone's Responsibility" sets out the framework for improving roads in Scotland until the end of the decade and beyond. It includes the vision, aims, commitments and targets for reductions in road deaths and serious injuries.
The three priority focus areas are:
- Speed and Motorcyclists (Speed)
- Pre-drivers, Drivers aged 17 to 25 and Older Drivers (Age)
- Cyclists and Pedestrians (Vulnerable Road Users)
The Strategic Plan provides a detailed action plan for all members of the partnership until 2020. The action plan will be based on a series of commitments with emphasis on:
Partnership approach 2020
The partnership takes guidance and direction from the Scottish Government and aligns itself to 'Go Safe', Scotland's Road Safety Framework to 2020.
