The report provides a framework for UK roads to help improve safety, and even outlines priority actions that will progress the UK towards fewer deaths from road crashes.
The full report, ‘Safe Roads for All’ – which can be found here – was prepared collaboratively by leading UK road safety and mobility experts and organisations.
It proposes a government leadership structure, headline safety performance framework, and priority actions such as:
- Goals, targets and performance indicators
- Functional hierarchy for roads and road investment
- Vehicle safety standards
- Improved roads policing and reviewed legal framework
- Best practice to help road victims
“It was a privilege to be a co-author of this report, that I hope will further an important debate around the UK’s road network – contributing to a real shift in our approach to safe and healthy mobility going forward. The strategy that this report calls for could make our roads and urban spaces more safe, healthy and enjoyable places to live – while also preventing thousands of deaths and catastrophic injuries currently seen on roads today.”
