Fewer fatal collisions on Cambridgeshire’s roads in 2011
THE number of people killed on the county’s roads fell during 2011.
During the year 33 people were killed in 30 collisions across Cambridgeshire – compared with 42 deaths in 2010.
Casualty reduction officer, Pc Steve Gedny said: “Every fatal collision is one too many, but it is pleasing that we have seen a reduction in those killed on our roads.”
Over the next 12 months, officers will be holding a number of targeted campaigns to reduce casualties including, drink drive campaigns, seatbelt enforcement weeks and operations to target motorists breaking the law.
The majority of the force’s road safety work and enforcement is done in conjunction with the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Partnership.

Councillor Steve Criswell, Cambridgeshire County Council Cabinet member for community infrastructure, said: “The reduction in the number of people who died on our roads is very encouraging and shows a very welcome continuing overall downward trend in the number of road fatalities.
“But we will not rest on our laurels and will continue to work with our partners to ensure we do everything we can to further improve road safety.”
