Observatory Update

3 February 2014

Three reviews of evidence have been added to The Road Safety Observatory:

Driver Training (Drivers)
Speed Limits (Roads)
Vehicle Lighting (Vehicles)

The Eyesight and Driving review, which had been on the site as a draft, has also now been replaced with a finalised version.

The Road Safety Observatory provides 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 the original reports. Since its launch in 2013 it has received more than 55,000 visits from almost 20,000 unique visitors.
