The Government’s priorities for improving road safety are set out in the British Road Safety Statement. We intend to publish a progress report towards the end of this year. Funding is being made available through the £175million Safer Roads Fund to improve the safety of the most dangerous local A-roads in England. The THINK! Country roads campaign targets improving safety on rural roads. Casualties on rural roads in 2016 were 6% lower than in 2012.
