Road safety in the UK is better than before, with the 2010 figure being the best it has ever been since records began. However, despite the fact that casualty reduction partnerships have been around since 1916, tackling this difficult subject is not easy.
The figures for 2011 are not looking so good, with a predicted increase. Cyclist road fatality has been on the up for two years, and traffic has been on the decrease. So why are we seeing a rise? Possibly some complacency, as the economy struggles corners are cut and along with that comes risk.
Research has been put forward to help tackle these problems but now a flaw has been identified, the groups used for research are a group who are willing candidates, open minded and keen. The reality was that this affected the results making targets unrealistic and unachievable.
