This year, for the first time, Scotland will have its very own Road Safety Week.

It’s a chance to unite and focus our energies; because even one death on our roads is one too many.

Scotland’s Road Safety Week will start on the 21st of March, 2022. Activities throughout the week include the Road Safety Scotland Seminar on 23 March, Police Scotland NE division’s focus on older drivers and Police Scotland East Command’s focus on drug driving and speeding. All activity will be backed with a call for everyone to publicly take a pledge to say we’re; ‘Working together to make Scotland’s roads safer.’

We all have a role to play. We hope you’ll join the conversation and encourage others to get involved too.

Scotland’s Road Safety Week’s Special Events

The Scottish Government’s Road Safety Framework to 2030 sets out a vision for Scotland to have the best road safety performance in the world by 2030. Scotland’s Road Safety Week is a chance to bring all the work that’s going on around the country to achieve that vision together – so we can regroup, refocus and really make a difference.

We expect events to follow many of the topics that Transport Scotland and its partners work hard on all year round; ‘Safe roads and roadsides’, ‘Safe vehicles’, ‘Safe road use’, ‘Post-crash responses’, and importantly, ‘Safe speeds’.

Scotland aims to have the best road safety in the world by 2030, and for no-one to be killed or seriously-injured on our roads by 2050.
