Road Safety and Public Health

24 March 2014

RoSPA has published new guidance to help road safety and public health professionals to work together to promote opportunities for walking and cycling. Road Safety and Public Health: RoSPA (DOP: 3/14)


The report says that a joined-up approach between public health and transport professionals can have a positive impact on issues such as heart disease, mental health and air pollution, as well as preventing injuries. The report concludes that road safety fits best with public health when both are seen together as ‘healthy transport’. It also includes a number of case studies where road safety and public health teams have successfully worked together.
