Set by Hugh Gillies, Director, Transport Scotland
Transport Scotland, along with other key stakeholders, has been working towards meeting the Scottish Government's ambitious targets to reduce road deaths and serious injuries on Scotland's roads by 2020. The results to date have been encouraging but clearly it remains the case that one road death is one too many.
Like other countries, in Scotland there are certain vulnerable road user groups where more could be achieved, specifically:
- older people
The reasons why these groups remain a prominent road safety challenge very, albeit they are all linked by socio-economic and demographic changes.
Transport Scotland would welcome exploration of innovative technology solutions that might help to directly reduce road deaths in one or more of these road user groups.
