In this new strategy for Kent we propose a target of zero road fatalities on the Kent Highway Network by 2050. We hope to get as close as possible to Zero and propose that zero deaths is the only appropriate target for us to have.

The success of this strategy will depend on engagement with Kent’s communities to work together towards safer roads, towns and villages. To achieve this, we are proposing a proactive approach to community engagement, which we are calling Community CIRCLE. This approach proposes research and pilot studies to align community concerns about safety with data on recent injury collisions.

We are proposing to follow the Safe Systems approach, which is designed with the human being at its core, accepting that even the most conscientious person will make a mistake at some point. The goal of Safe Systems is to ensure that these mistakes do not lead to a crash or, if a crash does occur, it is sufficiently controlled to not cause a death or a life-changing injury.

Full details of our proposals can be seen in the ‘Vision Zero Strategy’ draft
