The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) is hoping to improve the safety of vulnerable road users in Scotland.

Figures from Transport Scotland show that 898 cyclists were injured on the country’s roads in 2012, representing a nine per cent increase from 2011, with nine being killed and 167 suffering serious injuries.

There were 1,950 pedestrian casualties, including 54 deaths and 342 serious injuries.

Karen McDonnell, head of RoSPA Scotland, said: “As in previous years, the publication of road casualty figures for Scotland has shown that we cannot lose sight of the work that still needs to be done on making our roads safer, particularly where vulnerable road users like cyclists and pedestrians are concerned.”

Ms McDonnell explained that RoSPA is supporting initiatives to improve the safety of cyclists and pedestrians in a bid to prevent injuries.

Scotland’s target is to decrease the number of people killed in road accidents by 2020.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801604243-ADNFCR
