Jim Fitzpatrick: In 2000, we published Tomorrow's Roads: Safer for Everyone, our road safety strategy to 2010. This contained a wealth of actions to educate road users, improve the road environment and enforce road safety offences. The strategy also contained a commitment to achieve by 2010:
a 40 per cent. reduction in the number of people killed or seriously injured in road accidents;
a 50 per cent. reduction in the number of children killed or seriously injured; and
a 10 per cent. reduction in the slight casualty rate.
the number of people killed or seriously injured was 33 per cent. down;

the slight casualty rate was 28 per cent. down.
