Road Danger Reduction
In March 2009, we signed the Road Danger Reduction Charter to show our support for a Road Danger Reduction approach to safety on the roads.
Road Danger Reduction aims to reduce the sources of danger on the roads by:
- reducing the speed and number of motorised vehicles
- encouraging people to choose active, green, non-threatening forms of transport such as walking and cycling
- designing attractive streets and public spaces which are less dominated by motorised vehicles
- exploring new ways of measuring the danger on the roads.
Road Danger Reduction is a radical approach to transport planning which challenges the status quo and encompasses accessibility, healthy living, sustainability and innovative urban design as well as safety.
Our Transport Plan advocates a more holistic way of delivering improvements to local areas. We are calling this a "Better Neighbourhoods" approach.
