The Wales Road Casualty Reduction Partnership is a scheme which aims to reduce the number of accidents and casualties on the roads of Wales by using a combination of law enforcement and education for road users. Also known as GoSafe, the partnership is the largest of its kind in the UK and consists of 28 partners including the Welsh Government, the Welsh Police Forces and the 22 Unitary Authorities in the country. GoSafe is responsible for placing speed cameras in places where road accidents are abundant and are also responsible for encouraging motorists to drive safely through the use of education. In addition, the partnership works to provide engineering solutions to roads in order to increase safety. Vulnerable road users such as younger drivers and motorcyclists are targeted by GoSafe in order to educate on the importance of road safety. The use of campaigns aims to reduce the number of road casualties by increasing awareness of speeding and encouraging people to speak up if someone is driving recklessly. The partnership also provides advice on driver safety including what to do if you feel tired at the wheel, motorway safety and tyre safety. Although the promotion of road safety attempts to reduce the number of accidents, there may be some people who do not follow the advice given.
Road accident compensation
The Wales Road Casualty Reduction Partnership is a great way to promote road safety and to encourage road users to be responsible while driving. However, there may still be reckless drivers out there and not everyone follows advice willingly. Speeding may cause a serious car accident which could result in injuries or even casualties. Some injuries may be long-term which may cause financial repercussions. If you have been involved in a road accident which was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation.
