    As local authorities struggle to manage budget cuts, road safety groups get together to give councillors some free advice

    As local authorities struggle to manage budget cuts, road safety groups get together to give councillors some free advice

    Recent local authority budget cuts have concerned a group of road safety experts so much that they have got together to produce a free guide to help local councillors. Their aim is to help local councils prevent an increase in the number of road casualties in their areas. 

    The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has produced a guide, together with other road safety groups, that will help local councils deliver effective road safety services despite heavy cuts to their budgets. There is a concern amongst road safety experts that the number of road traffic accidents will increase, without the money that was previously available to local authorities.

    RoSPA states that since the mid-1980s the number of reported road casualties has steadily decreased, but they also suggest that there are a large number of unreported non-fatal casualties, some of which require hospital treatment.

    A representative from the leading personal injury claim advice provider, Accident Advice Helpline commented,

    “This is a very timely report as local authorities are understandably finding it hard to deliver consistent road safety services, given the budget cuts. I’m sure that any help and advice will be welcomed and should help councillors to make the best use of the money available to them.”

    The guide will help local authorities to identify the most frequent causes of accidents in their area and find ways to prevent deaths and serious injuries on their roads. Contributors to the guide include RoSPA, Road Safety GB, and the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety.

    Accident Advice Helpline provides expert personal injury claim advice to anyone thinking of making a non-fault accident claim. Personal injury settlements are made on a no win, no fee* basis. The free helpline number 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993.
