Road Safety Oral Question, 20/11/14 [S]

During First Minister's Question Time on 20 November 2014 Mark Griffin (Lab) asked the First Minister what the Scottish Government is doing to make roads safer for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.

The First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, replied It was this Government that, in 2009, introduced Scotlandís first road safety framework. Through that framework, we are committed to working with our road safety partners to ensure a steady reduction in the number of those killed or seriously injured on Scotlandís roads between 2009 and 2020. The latest published figures show that that approach is working, with the lowest road casualties in Scotland since records began. However, as on many other issues, there is still much work to be done.

For the full answer to this and any subsidiary questions see the Scottish Parliament Official Report 20 November 2014 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
