Public views sought on road safety priorities

Thursday, 5 April 2018

Priorities around road safety are the focus of an online public engagement exercise which is currently under way on the Isle of Man Government’s Dialogue website.

Feedback supplied during the exercise will help to inform the development of a Road Safety Strategy for the Island.

Minister for Home Affairs Bill Malarkey MHK said:

‘Issues around road safety are fundamental to our everyday lives, affecting how we move around and enjoy the Island.

‘Looking at ways we can make matters safer is always a positive move and I encourage people to take the time to provide feedback and help shape the Road Safety Strategy.’

The engagement exercise will run until April 30. After registering, users are able to add ideas of their own, read other people's ideas, comment on contributions and rate suggestions, in the same way as last year’s SAVE programme.

The intention is to build a picture of the main themes people would like to see addressed and their ideas on how this can be achieved.

Local issues at specific locations should be reported as normal by using the Department of Infrastructure’s website.
