New Consultation On Road Safety Compliance

As previously reported in December, the Department for Transport (DfT) has issued a consultation that seeks views on proposals for a package of measures aimed at improving compliance levels with key road safety laws. The package covers five issues, which are:

  • speeding

  • drink driving

  • seat belt wearing

  • driving under the influence of drugs

  • careless driving.

On each issue, the consultation examines five different approaches towards securing greater compliance:

  • greater awareness

  • effective enforcement and penalties

  • technology/incentivisation

  • the legal framework.

  • proposals to improve the suite of remedial training and testing schemes for driving offenders.

Replies required by 27 February 2009.
