Scotland's Road Safety Framework to 2030 Draft Public Consultation

Closed 1 Dec 2020

Opened 8 Sep 2020


The Road Safety Framework to 2030 sets out a compelling long-term vision for road safety, Vision Zero, where there are zero fatalities and injuries on Scotland’s roads by 2050. The journey to achieving this vision will also include ambitious interim targets where the number of people being killed or seriously injured on our roads will be halved by 2030. 

Views are being sought to inform proposals for achieving the targets which will be crucial to Scotland having the best road safety performance in the world.

Why your views matter

Scotland’s Road Safety Framework to 2020 ends on 31 December. Although Scotland road casualties are at the lowest levels since records began, to achieve the further 50% reduction in People Killed and Seriously Injured by 2030, as recommended by the United Nations and the European Union, a step change in road safety delivery is required. In response to the above challenge and in partnership with the road safety community and key stakeholders the Scottish Government has developed this draft Scotland’s Road Safety Framework to 2030 to strengthen Scotland’s position as a world leader in road safety
