The Road Safety Observatory

The Road Safety Observatory aims to provide easy access to independent road safety research and information for anyone working in road safety and for members of the public. It provides summaries and reviews of research on a wide range of road safety issues, along with links to original road safety research reports.

This site has been part-funded by the DfT and developed in association with a group of road safety bodies, including RoadSafe, and some of its members and supporters including RoSPA, the RAC Foundation, Road Safety GB, ACPO, SMMT and the AA together with  ADEPT, the South West Health Observatory, and PACTS.
