Road Safety

Road Safety education and training

The County Council provides education and training resources for people who live and work in Hampshire.

We aim to make the roads safer for everyone to use and run campaigns throughout the year to highlight the importance of road safety, focusing on drivers, riders, cyclists and pedestrians.

We have a team of specialists, including road safety officers, and work in partnership with other organisations including the police, the fire and rescue service, the NHS and other local authorities.

    Every year in Hampshire and Thames Valley dozens of teenagers and young people are killed or seriously injured on our roads.

    Safe Drive Stay Alive is a reaction to this. Fire and Rescue, the NHS, South Central Ambulance Service, nine authorities and the Police have come together to produce a hard-hitting event watched by thousands of students.
