Road safety impacts each and every one of us on our way to work, school, visiting family and friends, enjoying days out and doing day-to-day activities, whatever mode of transport we choose to take.
Road safety is one of our priorities and we do every thing we can to make sure our residents and visitors are safe when travelling across North East Lincolnshire.
For the most recent road safety statistics go to GOV.UK – Road accidents and safety statistics.

Our road safety engineers
Road safety engineers continually work to find priority areas where a new road safety scheme would reduce the risk of accidents. This could include the installation of traffic calming features such as speed bumps, raised tables or changes to speed limits such as 20mph zones.
We also work closely with our partners, including Safer Roads Humber, to identify areas for speed limit enforcement.
Road safety education
Our road safety education team deliver services and initiatives to help educate all road users on how to keep themselves safe.
The team works with local schools and colleges, attending assemblies and events to talk to children and young people on how to take care when using roads and footpaths.
We also work with the schools to try and improve safety in and around the building and playgrounds, and educate parents on the importance of parking safely around schools.
For those young adults who are old enough to be able to drive, or are learning to drive, the team also give advice and promote campaigns.
For some education resources for children and young people of all ages go to Think.
