SUPPORTER OF THE DECADE OF ACTION 2011-2020
There is growing awareness that the current road safety situation constitutes a crisis with devastating health, social and economic impacts that threaten health and development.
Over the next decade, the Road Safety Foundation will raise funds to measure and map the safety of the UK’s roads. We will support policy makers, road authorities and public in saving lives and saving money.
We lead the Campaign for Safe Road Design to raise understanding of how affordable road safety improvements can save lives.
The Foundation plays a pivotal role in raising awareness and understanding of the importance of road infrastructure through EuroRAP UK.
ROAD SAFETY FOUNDATION
The Road Safety Foundation is a UK charity advocating road casualty reduction through simultaneous action on all three components of the safe road system: roads, vehicles and behaviour.
The charity has enabled work across each of these components and several of its published reports having provided the basis of new legislation or government policy.
For the last decade, the charity has focused on leading the establishment of the European Road Assessment Programme (EuroRAP) in the UK and internationally. Since the inception of EuroRAP in 1999, the Foundation has been the UK member responsible for managing the programme in the UK (and, more recently, Ireland), ensuring the UK provides a global model of what can be achieved.
The Foundation also manages the Campaign for Safe Road Design on behalf of key stakeholders calling for Government commitment to make safe road design a national transport priority.
The Road Safety Foundation is a founder member of the FIA Foundation and frequently works with other FIA members in Britain and abroad. We also work closely with other road safety organisations including the RAC Foundation, AA, IAM, RoadSafe, PACTS and professional bodies such as ADEPT.
