Have you lost a loved one in a collision in Essex? We want to hear from you

Flowers lay by the side of the road

We have an aspiration that by 2040, no one will die or be seriously injured on Essex roads.  To achieve this, we need everyone’s support, including those who’ve tragically lost a friend or family member in a collision.

We believe that no one deserves to die on the road, and we believe that changes to speeds, the roadside, vehicle safety and driver behaviour can all lead to achieving our aspiration of zero deaths.

Will Cubbin, Partnership Manager, said: “Those who have lost a loved one in collisions are at the heart of what we do. We want to prevent further tragedy and devastation. We are so sorry for your loss.

“We want to hear from people who’ve been personally affected by death on our roads, to help inform us of future activity.

“The team would like to hold a memorial event in memory of those who’ve lost their life in collisions in Essex, and we need the support of friends and family members.

“We’d also like to create a team of Vision Zero ambassadors – a team who understand what it’s like to lose someone on the roads. Road deaths are not acceptable, and we need to garner public support for our aspiration.”
