The Police and Crime Commissioner has a road ‘Casualty Reduction and Support Reserve’ from which awards can be made to fund educational and road safety support activities. This includes initiatives such as Speedwatch and the charity the Road Victims Trust as well as work to improve driver behaviour and prevent collisions.
This fund also supports the countywide approach to road safety called the Vision Zero Partnership.
This partnership is made up of statutory and non-statutory agencies who have signed up to an ambition to prevent all road deaths across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and to significantly reduce the severity of injuries and subsequent costs and social impacts from road traffic collisions. You can find more about this approach which embraces the international ‘Safe System’ policy approach, in the Putting Communities First pillar of the Police and Crime Plan.
The Casualty Reduction and Support Reserve is not an open access fund and all awards must be sponsored by the partners within the Vision Zero Partnership.
