Road safety

Having succeeded in reducing casualties resulting from road collisions beyond the 2010 casualty reduction target as set by the UK government, South Ayrshire has adopted the latest Scottish road safety targets to 2020 as set by the Scottish Government.

2020 Target

People seriously injured43%55%
Children (<16 yrs) killed35%50%

In addition the previous 10% reduction target in the slight casualty rate will continue to 2020.

In September 2013, South Ayrshire Council's made a further commitment to Road Safety, when the Leadership Panel approved the South Ayrshire Road Safety Plan up to 2020.

The plan provides the road map for further reductions in injuries resulting from collisions on the road.
