We co-ordinate programmes of road safety training, education and publicity campaigns, to reduce road traffic casualties.
These aim to raise awareness of different road safety issues and are closely linked to the government's Think! (opens in a new window) campaign.
We are working harder than ever to reduce casualties on our roads.
Travelling by car
Travelling by bicycle
We recognise the health and environmental benefits of travelling by two wheels and help schools provide cycle training for young cyclists.
Travelling by motorcycle
Derbyshire roads attract many motorcyclists.
Unfortunately the county also suffers from a high number of motorcycle accidents.
Our publicity and training campaigns aim to reduce the number of motorcyclists killed or injured on our roads.
Working with children and schools
We work with schools to provide resources that compliment the national curriculum and promote road safety. We also encourage sustainable travel through school travel plans and our Travel Smart campaign.

Annual casualty report
In the county council area during 2011, a total of 2,836 people were injured in police reported collisions, of which 35 people died and 295 were seriously injured.
The number of children killed or seriously injured (KSI) was the lowest for 30 years, and for the first time since 2000, no children were killed on the roads of Derbyshire.
Car users remain the biggest group of KSI casualties closely followed by motorcyclists. The number of young driver KSIs has reduced significantly over the last year.'
