Road Safety

Road fatalities and casualties devastate families and communities. Each collision and injury is traumatic for everyone involved.

Through partnership working, we are committed to improving road safety in Northamptonshire. It is important to recognise that we each have a shared responsibility as front-line professionals, designers and builders, law enforcement agencies and users of the road to prevent crashes and to minimise the chances of fatal or serious injuries where crashes do occur.

To that end, we have established the Northamptonshire Safer Roads Alliance (NSRA). Our new strategy sets out the priorities and key actions of the NSRA for the next two years to improve road safety in the County and explains how the work of the NSRA will help road users stay safe and reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on the County’s roads.

We are confident that the work of the NSRA will bring major benefits in terms of reducing the pain and suffering inflicted on our society by avoidable deaths and serious injuries on our roads.
