The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has called for a greater focus on UK road safety in the wake of the government’s latest publication of road death figures.

Responding to new statistics released by the Department for Transport highlighting a potential stagnation in road safety improvements since the start of the decade, RoSPA stated that the two per cent reduction in road deaths in the last year was the second-lowest on record.
In total, 1,732 people died on British roads in 2015. At the same time, there were 22,137 recorded cases of people being seriously injured on the nation’s carriageways.
This second figure represented a three per cent annual downturn in accident numbers, but it too was criticised by the organisation as being far less than the improvements that were being regularly witnessed at the end of the last decade.
Kevin Clinton, head of road safety at RoSPA, said: “We are pleased to see that fatalities and injuries have dropped since 2014, but the longer-term trend seems to be showing stagnation, so they are not falling steadily as they were before 2011.
“This means that we need to do more to get back on a long-term downward trend – these accidents don’t have to happen.”
