The Lancashire Partnership for Road Safety
The Lancashire Partnership for Road Safety- launched in November 2002 - is committed to reducing the number of deaths and injuries on Lancashire’s roads. It is a long-term commitment to making fundamental changes to how we use the roads. The project is about saving lives, reducing injury and disability and making Lancashire a safer place in which to walk, cycle ride and drive. The programme aims to create a long-term shift in the public’s attitude and behaviour towards road safety. Over the next three years the project aims to achieve a minimum of 40 lives saved, 580 fewer people seriously injured and 760 fewer people slightly injured. In real terms their aim is to create an annual cost saving of £9.6 million. Fewer people seriously injured means less hardship and disruption for us all.
Partners are: Lancashire Constabulary, Lancashire CC, Blackburn with Darwen BC, Blackpool BC, NHS, Highways Agency, Lancashire Magistrates Court and Government Office NW
