UK Roads policing review to improve safety

17 July 2019

A first-of-its-kind joint review into roads policing and traffic enforcement will be launched later this year, in a bid to improve road safety.

The 2 year review, jointly funded by the UK Department for Transport (DfT) and Highways England, will look at how roads policing currently works, its effectiveness, and where improvements could be made or gaps bridged. The review is to be announced in the Road Safety Statement 2019, it will highlight best practice and identify gaps in service

The DfT will be looking at this with the Home Office and the National Police Chiefs’ Council. A pilot programme based on the review and consultation feedback could begin next year, and could test out new initiatives or ways of working to see what works best in reducing road casualties.
