Every death and life changing injury on Cambridgeshire and Peterborough’s roads or to a Cambridgeshire or Peterborough resident is one too many, and the social and economic burden of road casualties is felt much wider than just those immediately involved in the collision.
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Partnership (CPRSP) vision is to prevent all road deaths across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and to significantly reduce the severity of injuries and subsequent costs and social impacts from road traffic collisions.
In order to work towards this vision, the following targets have been adopted by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Partnership for the life of this strategy (all targeted reductions are compared to the 2005-09 average baseline):
- To reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured (KSI) in collisions by at least 40% by 2020.
- To reduce the number of children killed or seriously injured in collisions by at least 40% by 2020.
- To reduce the number of cyclists and pedestrians killed or seriously injured in collisions by at least 40% by 2020.
