The Scottish Government has set out its vision to have the best road safety performance in the world by 2030 – along with an ambitious long-term goal to eliminate road deaths and injuries by 2050.

The Road Safety Framework to 2030 sets out new strategic outcomes, built around the safe system approach, coupled with a comprehensive performance management system to monitor and evaluate progress.

The Framework’s main goals are to halve road deaths by 2030 and achieve Vision Zero by 2050.

To help achieve this, mode specific targets are being created to focus attention by partners on priority areas – and forge stronger connections between policies at national and local levels.

To coincide with the new Framework – and to kick-start a national conversation around road safety – a new national marketing campaign was launched by the Scottish Government and Road Safety Scotland.

The campaign focuses on speed reduction – with the clear message that there is no excuse for speeding.
