Surrey County Council are the main highway authority for most of Surrey's roads, whereas the Highways Agency look after the main strategic network of motorways and trunk roads.

Within Surrey the county council have delegated responsibility for most highway decisions including speed limits to local committees of elected county council and borough or district councillors. Highway improvements to improve safety will usually be prioritised at sites that have suffered a history of collisions. This is because these will be the sites where the risk of collision in the future will be greatest unless changes can be made. The measures that could be introduced are wide ranging and will depend on the pattern of collisions, the nature of the site and the money available. A map of all the personal injury collisions recorded by the police throughout Great Britain is available via www.crashmap.co.uk
