Figures released by Medway Council show that killed or seriously injured (KSI) casualties in Medway are down 60% since 10 years ago and now stand at an all-time low.
This means that Medway has comfortably exceeded the government’s 10-year national target of reducing casualties by 40%.
There were 59 KSI casualties in 2010, down from an average of 147 recorded 10 years ago.
Moreover, between 2009 and 2010 the number of KSIs reduced by 19%, from 73 to 59.
Cllr Phil Filmer, portfolio holder for front line services, said: “The work doesn’t stop here. We will continue to analyse crash data to highlight areas that would benefit from more road safety measures and continue to work hard to reduce the number of people involved in road traffic collisions.”
