Norfolk County Council tackles the issue of casualty reduction by engineering, education, training and publicity.
By working in partnership with many other organisations we strive to reduce the number of people killed and injured on our roads.
We are currently moving to new system for reporting highways defects. In a few days’ time, there will be a new reporting form, and you will be able to track the status of your reported problem via a new customer account if you create one. In the meantime, you can continue to report problems on the old form, but you will not be able to track the status.
Casualty figures for the rolling year to end of September 2017 are:
- Number of people killed or seriously injured in road traffic collisions – 412
- Number of children (under 16) killed or seriously injured in road traffic collisions – 23
- Number of people slightly injured in road traffic collisions – 2,035
- Chart showing Norfolk killed and seriously injured casualties (pdf - 86kb)
Research has established that in over 90% of crashes on the road the major cause was human error.
