Road Safety is one of the Commissioners' Operational Priorities in 2017. Through publicity, education and enforcement actions, we aim at enhancing the level of road safety in Hong Kong.
Commissioner's Operational Priorities 2017 - Road Safety
- Reduce fatal and serious accidents through a multi-agency approach.
- Deter drink driving, drug driving, speeding and illegal road racing.
- Promote pedestrian safety, with particular emphasis on the elderly and safe cycling.
- Ensure smooth traffic flow through application of the Selected Traffic Enforcement Priorities (STEP).
In 2016, there were 16 099 traffic accidents involving casualties, with 2 379 cases involving serious injuries and 129 involving fatalities. The numbers of accidents involving casualties decreased by 0.4 percent and the number of accidents involving serious injuries or fatalities decreased by 5 percent as compared with 2015.
