Bedfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner's Cameras, Tickets & Collisions Fund 2019/20 - is now closed
Road safety is an integral part of community safety which is in turn a matter of significant importance to the people who live in; work in and visit Bedfordshire.
The Statutory Authorities that make up the Bedfordshire Road Safety Partnership are all committed to improving road safety. Road casualties devastate families and communities. Collisions also cost the national economy an estimated £16.3 billion a year, and add pressure on the NHS and emergency services.
Bedfordshire has seen significant reductions in serious collisions over recent years; however we are aware that the trend is showing signs of increases in serious collisions both in Bedfordshire and also nationally – so we cannot afford to be complacent. There is a strong collective will for us to work together; responding to accident trends, with well thought out and evidence based activity using the diverse skills each partner brings in order to achieve sustainable reductions.
The Police and Crime Commissioner’s (PCC's) Cameras, Tickets & Collisions Fund seeks to help in reducing the number of road casualties and fatalities in Bedfordshire.
The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) is now encouraging applications from projects and organisations which aim to make the county's roads safer and help with any of the following objectives set:
• To reduce the number of young drivers, passengers, riders and pedestrians killed or seriously injured in Bedfordshire To reduce the social impact of road casualties, at an individual, family and community level
• To reduce the number of cyclists killed or seriously injured on Bedfordshire’s roads whilst increasing the levels of cycling and cycle stages undertaken.
• To reduce the number of pedestrians killed or seriously injured on Bedfordshire’s roads.
• To reduce the number of motorcyclists killed and seriously injured on Bedfordshire’s roads.
• To reduce the number of older people (aged 60 or over) killed or seriously injured on Bedfordshire’s roads.
