Plan to Improve Road Safety in Local Authorities: Good Practice Guidelines
In 2000, the UK Government, Scottish Executive and National Assembly for Wales set national casualty reduction targets to cut casualties significantly by 2010. Whilst at the national level the number of casualties in road accidents has fallen in line with the targets, there is a wide variation in the performance in individual local authority areas in Scotland.
Research was carried out to find out why there is such a large variation in the casualty reductions being achieved by local authorities and to identify good practice which may be more widely adopted to help cut casualties across the whole of Scotland.
