Scotland consults on 2030 road safety strategy

  • September 9, 2020

The Scottish government is consulting on a new road safety strategy for 2030 to achieve the target of cutting  road deaths by 50% by 2030 in line with UN and EU targets.  The Scottish government says a “step change in road safety delivery” will be needed, and has published a draft framework for consultation.

The UK government currently does not have an overall road safety target, although the nations of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales have set targets, along with cities including London and Highways England, which manages major roads.
