The Government takes road safety very seriously and while UK roads continue to be among the safest in the world, we can never afford to be complacent or relax efforts to improve what we do.

The Road Safety Statement, ‘A Lifetime of Road Safety’ published in July 2019, included over 70 actions that will contribute towards safer road use for everyone; from drivers and motorcyclists, to pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders. Over half of these actions have now completed and the majority of the remaining are underway, and we are making good progress with them. We will be providing an update to the Road Safety Statement later on this year and this will include the next steps on integrated approach to road safety.
