About us

The Road Safety GB North East group is made up of the 12 local highway authorities in the region, three regional police forces and four fire and rescue teams. There are two county councils and ten district councils covering Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, County Durham and Cleveland.

Our objective is to enable individual road safety teams to work together to tackle local casualty issues and to pool resources, skills and knowledge to provide a wider perspective on road safety issues. We also develop publicity campaigns and other education and training resources to reduce casualty numbers across the region.We work closely with the police, fire brigade and other emergency services, and are supported by Highways England.

Statistics used by the group are taken from analysis conducted by the North East Regional Road Safety Resource, which is provided by Northumbria, Durham and Cleveland police forces.

Road Safety GB is made up of local highway authorities and road safety experts from around the UK. Its aim is to help reduce road casualties through education, training and publicity.
