Partnership Report informs innovative interventions

1 January 0001

A study by Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust funded by The Road Safety designed to inform innovative approaches to road safety interventions has been published and is available here.

Funding of £100,000 was awarded to Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust to work with Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Partnership, in order to look in detail at crashes that cause severe injury and death, in particular examining the types of drivers that are involved in these crashes. This innovative project brought together partners from the Local Authority, Emergency Services, Higher Education and Cambridge University Hospitals to explore whether prevention strategies targeted at groups of drivers similar to those considered culpable for crashes, rather than targeting groups who are likely to be injured, have an impact on road safety.

The Road Safety Trust is an independent grant-giving trust supporting projects and research that make UK roads safer for all road users - pedestrians, cyclists, mobility scooter users, car drivers, lorry and van drivers, and motorcyclists.
