Road Safety Since 2010 – Update with 2017 data

18 February 2019

David Davies, Chief Executive of PACTS comments on its report 'Road Safety Since 2010 - Update with 2017 data':

''PACTS understands that the DfT is putting the final touches to its refreshed Road Safety Statement and Action Plan. PACTS very much hopes that all these announcements will focus on what matters and what works. To keep the focus on the big picture – reducing the number of the most serious road casualties – we are publishing Road Safety Since 2010. This updates our earlier report with the latest (2017) casualty data.''

“This short, factual report confirms the lack of progress in reducing deaths on UK roads over the past seven years. Uniquely, it compares the trends, on common bases, across the main jurisdictions of the UK (England, London, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) and for the Strategic Road Network in England. It also compares casualty trends for the main road user groups. It shows that concerted national action is required by the UK government and devolved authorities to get UK road safety back on track.”
