Road safety: recent progress and future work

14 June 2018

You may well have seen the recent road safety announcements made by the Prime Minister regarding;

  • A competition to design a new roadside breathalyser device for the Police (led by PACTS with £350k funding from DfT for the successful design)
  • The creation of a Road Casualty Accident Investigation Project (RCAIP), led by the RAC Foundation with £480k funding from DfT to explore accident causation and opportunities to reduce collisions on our roads, on 10th June.

A ministerial statement has been published in both houses of Parliament reporting progress on the 2015 Road Safety Statement (RSS), and allocation of the Safer Roads Fund (as well as a report on lessons learned from the bidding process).

This is also refreshed commitment to RSS as a 2 year Action Plan. The DfT expect the RCAIP to inform the future approach to road safety and will be receiving regular progress reports on this work.
