    Accident Investigation and Prevention (AIP)

    Each year, we carry out a programme to identify locations where injury accidents are a cause for concern and we try to devise engineering measures to reduce the risk of accidents occurring.

  • Road Safety Audit

    The council recognises that it is important to consider road safety at the design stages of new schemes as opposed to having to address safety problems at a later date. This is reinforced by the statutory duties placed on local roads authorities to consider safety when building new road schemes or making alterations to existing roads.

  • School Crossing Patrols

    West Lothian Council is responsible for providing School Crossing Patrol Guides, to schools throughout West Lothian, to help children cross busy roads on their way to and from school.
