October is tyre safety month and we’re encouraging everyone to take the time to check their tyres. Click on the documents section to find out more.
We aim to make the roads in Leeds safer for all road users, whether they walk, ride or drive. We do this by analysing road casualty data (which is supplied to us by the West Yorkshire Police); planning, designing, implementing and assessing road traffic engineering safety schemes; rolling out our programme of 20mph limits in residential areas; and delivering road safety education, training and publicity programme. The School Crossing patrol service also plays an important role in helping to keep our roads safer. There are currently 180 crossing sites within the Leeds boundary. Crossing patrols are legally empowered to stop traffic and the Road Traffic Act enable patrols to cross any pedestrian, not just children.
If you would like more information on any Road Safety issues or the services that we provide, please contact us using the Contact Us section on this page.
