Road safety for families

Surrey has about 3,000 miles of road and the 2011 census stated that we have a population of around 1.1 million people. With so many people using a relatively small amount of road it's not surprising that accidents happen.

Although we all use the roads every day and mostly without incident it's always worth stopping to think about how we can make sure that we are not the victims or the cause of an accident.

In 2013, 45 young people and children under the age of 16 were killed or seriously injured in accidents on Surrey's roads. The total number of people injured in accidents on Surrey's roads in the same year was 5,223.

There is a lot of information available to help you and your family stay safe whether you are travelling by car, motorbike, bike or on foot:
