Road Safety Observatory Revamped

19 August 2021

The Road Safety Observatory, originally developed by a range of key road safety organisations including RoSPA, the Department for Transport, Road Safety GB, PACTS and RoadSafe, with funding from DfT and Highways has been re-vamped. Thanks to the team at RoSPA the new site is now available. 

The observatory aims to provide free and easy access to independent road safety research and information for anyone working in road safety and for members of the public. It formerly existed as a standalone website, designed to respond to demand for easier access to research and information in a format understandable to both the public and professionals.  Now key research syntheses can be accessed here. The revamped site provides summaries and reviews of research on a wide range of road safety issues, along with links to original road safety research reports. By bringing together many of the key road safety NGOs and organisations, the Observatory hopes to provide one coherent view of road safety evidence and the potential impact of different measures.
