Organisation: Road Safety Scotland
Date uploaded: 1st September 2011

This research was carried out (in 2005) to find out why there was such a large variation in the casualty reductions achieved by local authorities and to identify good practice which may be more widely adopted to help cut casualties.

In 2000 the UK Government, Scottish Executive and National Assembly for Wales set national casualty reduction targets to cut casualties significantly by 2010. While at the national level the number of casualties in road accidents has fallen in line with the targets, there is a wide variation in the performance in individual local authority areas in Scotland.

This research was carried out to find out why there is such a large variation in the casualty reductions being achieved by local authorities and to identify good practice which may be more widely adopted to help cut casualties across the whole of Scotland.
