The Lancashire Road Safety Partnership is the coordinating body for Lancashire, Blackburn and Blackpool which aims to reduce road casualties through the management of speed, speed enforcement, driver education and training and through developing collaborative approaches to education, awareness, engagement and other measures.
All the partners are committed to working together to reduce casualties on Lancashire’s roads and make people feel safe by:
- Delivering coordinated enforcement, education and campaigns
- Responding to community road safety issues across Lancashire
- Changing attitudes and behaviours
The Lancashire Road Safety Partnership began in 2001 as part of the Department for Transport’s National Safety Camera Programme with the principle aim of helping achieve the Government’s 2010 casualty reduction targets.
Ten years on and the 2010 targets were met and exceeded but the number of people killed and seriously injured on Lancashire’s roads is still too high.
The government produced a new Strategic Framework for Road Safety in May 2011 which set out the role of Government in contributing to Road Safety. Using the Strategic Framework the Lancashire Road Safety Partnership is working to reduce road casualties across Lancashire.
