The road safety partnership working hard to stop ALL fatal and serious collisions in Devon and Cornwall by 2040

In 2021 47 people were killed and 647 seriously injured on Devon and Cornwall's roads we want to stop all fatal and serious collisions by 2040 that is our vision

our vision.

Vision Zero’s ambition is to cut road deaths and serious injuries to zero by 2040 – and to reduce current numbers by 50% by 2030.

In 2021, 47 people were killed and 647 were seriously injured on the roads of Devon and Cornwall. That number MUST come down. While the region is one of the safest when it comes to road safety, we believe that any death or serious injury is too many.

The UK has some of the safest roads in the world, but the effects of every death or serious injury on our roads are devastating, for the bereaved, for families and loved ones, and for those who support the seriously injured, some of whom may have long-term life-changing injuries.

who we are .

Vision Zero is a collaborative project between a number of organisations across Devon and Cornwall. The one thing they all share is a commitment to cut the number of deaths and serious injuries in the region to zero.

Vision Zero is led by a partnership board which includes a wide range of experts from all around the South West including senior police and fire officers, leading clinicians, councillors and the police and crime commissioner for Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

The board meets four times a year to discuss ideas and decide what actions can be taken to further drive down the number of people killed or seriously injured.
