Road Safety Targets

The Road Safety Framework for Wales identifies high risk and vulnerable groups which should be specifically targeted by road safety interventions to reduce the number of collisions they are involved in.

The high risk groups are:

  • Motorcyclists
  • Young Drivers and passengers (16-24 years old)

Vulnerable groups include:

  • Older drivers (70+ years old)
  • Children
  • Pedestrians
  • Cyclists
  • and the list goes on to mention horse-riders, driving for work, road workers and deprived communities

The main targets from Road Safety Framework for Wales are based on a comparison to the average figures for Wales between 2004-08 (the ‘baseline’), and are:

  • A 40% reduction in the total number of people killed and seriously injured (KSI) on Welsh roads by 2020
  • A 25% reduction in the number of motorcyclists killed and seriously injured (KSI) on Welsh roads by 2020
  • A 40% reduction in the number of young people (aged 16-24) killed and seriously injured (KSI) on Welsh roads by 2020
