Have your say

West Sussex County Council is considering a new way of approaching road safety and wants to know what the public think.

A survey has been launched asking people to comment on a proposed Road Safety Framework aimed at cutting the number of people killed or seriously injured on West Sussex roads in 2020 by 25 per cent.

The council’s cabinet member for highways and transport, John O’Brien, said: ‘Road deaths and injuries impose a terrible human cost.

‘That is why we want to take a new approach to how road safety is tackled in the county.

‘We would like to know if the public share our view, so please take a look at the online survey and let us know your thoughts.’

The framework is based on ‘Vision Zero’, a safer system with an aspiration that in future no-one is killed on our roads.

The survey is open until Sunday, March 13. Visit
