Call for Evidence on Cycling and Walking Safety

9 March 2018

A Call for Evidence on Cycling and Walking Safety has been published, in support of the ambition in the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy to make cycling and walking the natural choice for shorter journeys, or as part of a longer journey.

It was announced by Jesse Norman, Cycling and Road Safety Minister, following his earlier announcement of a review of cycle safety in September 2017. Your organisation’s input to the review in December was very helpful in shaping the Call for Evidence document.

Alongside the Call for Evidence, an Independent Legal Expert report has been published which examines the case for a change in law equivalent to causing death or serious injury by dangerous or careless driving, for cycling. The government’s response to this report will be published shortly and, at this stage, we are not seeking comments on the report.

The announcement is available on the gov.uk website.

Call for Evidence consultation documents and online questionnaire are available here.

Please support the Call for Evidence and let your members and networks know about today’s announcement, as well as making your own response.

The Call for Evidence consultation closes on the 1st June.
