The Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership (LRSP) is currently running an online survey to establish public perceptions of road safety among the county’s residents and road users.
Formed in 2000, LRSP is a multi-agency partnership which brings together road safety professionals from Lincolnshire County Council, Lincolnshire Police, Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue, East Midlands Ambulance Service and Highways England.
The Partnership’s brief is to ‘enhance the quality of life of the road users of Lincolnshire by reducing ill health, disability and death caused by road collisions’.
LRSP says that since 2000 there has been a significant reduction in the number of people killed or seriously injured on Lincolnshire’s roads, but that it ‘wants to do better’.
The Partnership press announcement about the survey says: “Whilst we have on going contact with the public on individual issues, we want to take this opportunity to ask a wide range of road users.
“Where we can clearly demonstrate public concern on road safety issues raised, we can formulate either direct action or information campaigns to effect positive change in attitude and behaviour.”
The survey will run from September to November 2016 and the results will also be published in due course on the Partnership’s website.
