Road Safety Strategy: Replies from Jane Kennedy, Steve Rotheram and Sean Traynor
In response to the September 2017 letter to Jane Kennedy and Steve Rotheram (https://wacm.org.uk/19.html) expressing concern about the new Strategy, the following replies have been received. Meetings with Jane Kennedy and Sean Traynor have taken place.

Reply from Jane Kennedy, 17 Oct 2017:
Thank you for your correspondence regarding the Liverpool City Region Road Safety Strategy 2017-2020. I apologise for the delay in responding.
I was interested to read your observations and will forward them to the Merseyside Road Safety Partnership for their consideration.
I support the "Vision Zero" approach to road safety. If it would be helpful, I would like to extend an invitation for a meeting with you and your colleagues to discuss the issue. If you would like to contact my office directly via email to info@merseysidepcc.info, a date for a meeting can be arranged.
I hope that this is helpful.
Yours sincerely,
Jane Kennedy
Police & Crime Commissioner, Merseyside
