Essex County Fire and Rescue Service is committed to promoting road safety and seeking to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on the roads of Essex as a result of road traffic collisions (RTCs).
In 2007 1,065 people were killed or seriously injured on the roads in Essex. By 2017, this has fallen by 19% to 855. Whilst this is a tremendous success, and a tribute to the effectiveness of road safety activities in Essex, the number of people killed or seriously injured on our roads remains unacceptably high.
