Road Safety

A variety of resources are available for Nursery, Primary, Secondary and FE Colleges, and including information on Child Cycle Training. Road safety is an issue that concerns everyone living in the city. We have produced the Bristol road casualty review report.Only personal injury collisons are covered by this report:

Enforcement and Safety Cameras

There is a clear and close relationship between speed and road collisions. Higher speed reduces the margin for driver error, increasing the risk that an accident will occur. It also increases the severity of injuries sustained by people involved in road collisions, particularly pedestrians and other vulnerable road users.

Enforcement of speed limits is the responsibility of the Police (Avon and Somerset Constabulary), and is appropriate where other approaches to casualty reduction are not possible, or where they have tried but significant levels of speeding and / or casualties continue to occur. It is a criminal offence to exceed the posted legal speed limit on any road and at any time.

Speed limit enforcement currently takes the form of Community Speed Watch, Neighbourhood Policing and the Road Policing Unit.

In 2011, the Department for Transport requested that casualty, crash and speed information be provided for each permanent fixed speed camera site. However, as the Safety Cameras in the West of England Road Safety Partnership are currently switched off, there is no requirement for the local authorities to provide this data.

Improve road safety with local traffic schemes

Council funding given to Neighbourhood Partnerships could be spend on schemes to improve road safety. The Traffic Choices website is an independent resource which helps Partnerships spend their money on schemes which provide the greatest safety benefit.
