In 2015 Bristol City Council became one of the first UK local authorities to publish a Safe Systems Road Safety Plan with the ambition of ending deaths and life-changing injuries on the roads. Professor Adrian Davis was then the public health consultant embedded into Bristol City Council who co-wrote that Plan. In 2018, the One City Plan included a target for ending deaths and life-changing injuries by 2040. Meeting the target won’t be possible without city-wide action. Earlier in 2022, Adrian researched how the city of Bristol (not just the Council) can get on track with making the 2040 target a reality.

At this event, Adrian will present on that report alongside a colleague from one of Bristol’s NHS Major Trauma Teams on the reality of life-changing injuries for those who survive major trauma on our roads. We will also hear from a victim support group on the importance of reducing road danger injuries and the repercussions of daily road traffic on families and communities.
