The public is invited to submit responses to the UK government’s Roads Policing Review Call for Evidence, which is now open until 5 October 2020.
A culmination of a joint review by the Department for Transport, Home Office and the National Police Chiefs’ Council over the past year, the review seeks views on existing practices and resources, evidence of effectiveness in reducing casualties and invites “new thinking”.
“Since 2010, we have seen a plateauing in the number of people killed and seriously injured on our roads after years of steadily declining numbers and have instituted this review to combat that situation,” states the report.
The review will explore how:
- we can better use intelligence to target dangerous behaviours
- technology can assist in enforcing road traffic law now and in the future
- to better understand the value of enforcement in influencing road user behaviour
This call for evidence is part of a wider review of roads policing in England and Wales. Replies will be collated and a summary of responses will be published late in 2020.
