Transport for Buckinghamshire's Network Safety Team implements an annual programme of road safety engineering schemes and a programme of road safety education initiatives in order to reduce the number of people injured on Buckinghamshire roads.
Road Safety education is primarily aimed at the more vulnerable road users such as young drivers, older drivers, driving for work and motorcyclists. Publicity campaigns cover many issues but particularly focus on the fatal four; speeding, drink drive, mobile phones and seatbelts.

Requesting a 20mph speed limit
Find out more here about the council's approach to 20mph speed limits, 20mph zones and the process for requesting a 20mph speed limit on a road.
Take a look at this flowchart which explains all of the steps needed and who else will need to be involved in supporting your request.
Road Safety e-learning Modules
Transport for Buckinghamshire have developed three online e-learning modules.
The first was the winter driving module which won the Chartered Institute of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) 'Ringway Road Safety Award' in 2019. The online module was created to replace the physical winter driving workshops, which were held at fire stations across the county. The aim was to increase the availability of the workshop to all, not just those attending workshops. Within weeks of its launch, the module had been completed over 1,000 times - a 700% increase on the number of people who had attended the workshops previously.
This was followed up with our Speed Awareness module. This aimed to help drivers to recognise the speed limit for their vehicle, the type of road they are on and useful hints and tips to help drivers drive at an appropriate speed within the limit.
The final module we developed is for mature drivers and their families. It contains useful information about how our driving changes with age, what can affect it and what you can do to help yourself to keep driving safely for as long as possible.
