MPs to investigate road safety as progress flatlines
The Commons Transport Committee is launching an inquiry ‘to scrutinise the Government’s approach to road safety’ over concern that progress on the issue has levelled off
Highways has reported that between 2007-2012 road traffic fatalities dropped by 40%, but since then has remained level, rather than continually dropping over the last five years.
The Commons Transport Committee has now launched an inquiry, aiming to review the Governments current approach to road safety, and see what further can be done to reduce fatalities on the road.
They are looking for new input from “road safety campaigners, road user groups, local authorities, businesses that employ drivers and those who see their children off to school with concerns about their journey.”
