In 2017 the Department for Transport (DfT) commissioned a road safety management capacity review (RSMCR). This was a recommendation by PACTS in 2015 and PACTS was pleased that it was accepted by DfT and included in its 2015 British Road Safety Statement. The DfT is expected to publish the report in full in late spring 2018.
In November, PACTS submitted written evidence to the ‘Improving Air Quality’ inquiry that focuses on the interplay between the Government’s air quality policies and road safety.
In a joint letter to the DfT, PACTS has urged new Minister Jesse Norman MP to support improvements to European legislation and to champion continued improvements under UK legislation regarding minimum standards for vehicles, post-Brexit.
