Road safety and considerate travel

How we improve road safety

We work to reduce road casualties within the borough through training, education and awareness initiatives. We work with everyone but focus on vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, school children and the elderly.

Our transport plan sets out how we overcome some of the current transport problems that affect us locally and fits into a London-wide transport strategy. We aim to improve road safety, public transport, cycling and walking facilities. For more information on our transport plan see our Sustainable Transport Supplementary Planning Document.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and the Government's THINK! website both provide advice and information on road safety, including:

  • young drivers 
  • vehicle safety
  • horse riders  
  • motorcycling  
  • cycling  
  • policies for driving as part of your work
