Young Driver Green Paper Postponed

19 December 2013

Commenting, PACTS Executive Director David Davies said, “Ministers have admitted that they are reneging on their repeated commitments to publish a consultation paper on young driver safety this year. It looks like a clear case of putting politics before the safety of young people, giving the general election priority over saving lives. PACTS is dismayed that the government is not prepared even to consult on such a vital issue.”

Road Safety minister Robert Goodwill speaking at The Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards explained the difficulties government were facing in trying to balance restrictions on novice drivers against the need to travel for work or education but indicated that he had great faith in some of the telematics systems now becoming available. RoadSafe will continue to work to identify which such solutions improve safety. One from ingenie was among this year's award winners
