Orginal Consultation Text

In Kent, the number of people killed or seriously injured in road crashes fell by 50% between 2000 and 2010. We have a target to deliver a further 33% reduction by 2020.

It is vital that death and injury on Kent’s roads continues to be tackled as effectively as possible by all agencies involved. As part of our commitment, the County Council is producing a new Road Casualty Reduction Strategy for Kent aimed at drawing on the latest data and research available to us, as well as improving the effectiveness of how we work with our partners and stakeholders.
