PACTS launches list of road
The Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety (PACTS) has drawn up a list of priorities for road safety that would substantially reduce the level of death and injury on roads in the UK.
PACTS will be discussing these with Government, political parties, parliamentarians, stakeholders and partners in the run-up to the General Election on May 7, 2015.
According to PACTS, unless the Government acts a third of a million people will be killed or seriously injured on the roads in Great Britain over the two decades ending 2030, representing a loss to society valued at approximately £110 billion.
Despite a downward trend there will still be approximately 1,000 road deaths per year in 2030 unless concerted action is taken.
