THE ROAD SAFETY PARTNERHSIP WORKING HARD TO REDUCE FATAL & SERIOUS COLLISIONS IN DEVON & CORNWALL
who we are.
About our members
Vision Zero is a collaborative project between Devon & Cornwall Police, Devon & Somerset Fire and Rescue Service, Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service, South Western Ambulance Service NHS Trust, National Highways, Devon Air Ambulance, Cornwall Air Ambulance, The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, Devon County Council, Cornwall Council, Plymouth City Council, Torbay Council, Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust, University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust and the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety (PACTS).
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. Each meeting starts with a roll call of names of the people who have died on our roads since the previous meeting, followed by a minute’s silence in their memory.
Vision Zero also has an Operational Delivery Group which is tasked with carrying out practical projects with the specific aim of reducing deaths and serious injuries on our roads.
