Road Safety

 

Road Safety is one of the Commissioners' Operational Priorities in 2021. Through Engineering, Engagement, and Enforcement, we aim at enhancing the level of road safety in Hong Kong.

Commissioner's Operational Priorities 2021 - Road Safety

  1. Reduce fatal and serious accidents, particularly those involving public transport and cycling, through a multi-agency approach.
  2. Deter drink driving, drug driving, speeding and illegal road racing.
  3. Promote pedestrian safety, with particular emphasis on the elderly and safe cycling.
  4. Ensure smooth traffic flow through application of the Selected Traffic Enforcement Priorities (STEP) and the use of technology.

In 2020, there were 15 298 traffic accidents involving casualties, with 1 912 cases involving serious injuries and 96 involving fatalities. The numbers of accidents involving casualties decreased by 5 percent and the number of accidents involving serious injuries and fatalities increased by 4 percent as compared with 2019. We will continue to work in partnership with other government departments, transport associations, road safety stakeholders, educational bodies and community organizations to make Hong Kong a safer place for road users.
