Enforcement of road traffic collisions is a matter for the Police. More widely, in June the Government announced its intention to deliver a more strategic approach to preventing deaths and serious injuries on our roads. The Department for Transport is developing a two-year action plan which will focus on four priority user groups – young people, rural road users, motorcyclists and older vulnerable users.

A refreshed road safety statement will also be informed by early lessons from the new road collision investigation pilot - a £480,000 partnership between police forces and the RAC Foundation to trial an innovative approach to road collision investigation, carrying out more in-depth, qualitative analysis of the underlying causes of road safety incidents in order to get a better understanding of what is really causing collisions on UK roads.
