Somerset Road Safety

Somerset County Council’s dedicated road safety team, Somerset Road Safety, is comprised of experienced road safety professionals committed to reducing the number of collisions and casualties on the county's roads by promoting a Safe Systems approach to safe road use through education, advice and training, engineering, and enforcement.

Somerset Road Safety works in partnership with a wide variety of associates and is comprised of two teams; the Education, Training and Publicity (ETP) team and the Collision Investigation and Prevention (CIP) team.

The ETP team facilitates, coordinates and delivers workshops and presentations to all ages throughout Somerset, providing road safety advice and training to all types of road user from pre-school aged pedestrians, motorcyclists to post-retirement drivers wishing to drive safely for longer. Whilst a large proportion of ETP teams work is focused within schools and colleges, the team are also available to support ad hoc events run in the local community, where road safety advice would be welcomed. 

The CIP team investigates fatal collisions within the county - defining causes and recommending suitable solutions through engineering, enforcement or education. The team also compiles data on every other injury collision in Somerset. This data is also used to develop engineering, enforcement or education strategies, including focusing the objectives of the ETP team.
