Project summary

Funding of £19,000 has been awarded to PACTS towards a research project 'UK Road Safety - Seizing the Opportunities'. The aim of the research is to provide support to the road safety community on the opportunities presented in the Government's 2015 Road Safety Statement, and identify how to translate these opportunities into tangible actions to reduce casualties. The research will summarise key safety issues, problems and solutions, highlight opportunities for influence and identify 'Safe System' progress indicators.


Three reports and a conference.


Reports have been used by PACTS as follows: response to Ministerial Statement on Road Safety, support for revisions to EU Vehicle Safety Regulations, recommendation for the prioritisation of Vulnerable Road Users and need for a Road Safety Performance Management Framework at National and Local Level.
