South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership
Road safety advice

To work towards Vision Zero, the Partnership will operate using the Safe System method: a multi-agency approach that places road safety at the centre of traffic system planning, design, operation and use.

The approach stems from the belief that every road death or serious injury is preventable and is built upon two basic facts about people:

  1. People make mistakes and will make mistakes when on the roads

  2. People are vulnerable to being killed or seriously injured if they are involved in a crash.

The Safe System recognises these facts and seeks to design them out of the equation.

Put simply, this means that all elements of the road system - vehicles, infrastructure, speed limits, road users, and post-crash care - work together as one to minimise the chance of a crash, or, if a crash does take place, to prevent death or serious injury from occurring.
Under the Safe System there are five themes for action.

  • Safe Vehicles - reducing risk posed by vehicles.

  • Safe Road Users – encouraging safe behaviours of people using our roads.

  • Safe Speeds - encouraging speeds appropriate to the street.

  • Safe Roads and Roadsides - designing an environment forgiving of mistakes.

  • Post-Collision Response - learning from collisions and improving justice and care for victims.

 
Partners will use targets and safety performance indicators (SPIs) to measure success and report progress.
