Project summary

Funding of £100,000 has been 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 brings 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.
