SUPPORTING SAFER DRIVING INTO OLDER AGE

Today, we have published our review of older driver road safety. Supported by the Department for Transport, we have looked at the recommendations of the National Older Drivers Strategy, and considered the developments and progress in the five years since it was published. The report makes various recommendations for supporting safer driving into older age.

SAFE ROADS FOR ALL

The Safe Roads for All report was released this week, informed by our EuroRAP Crash Risk Mapping resultes. It calls on the UK Government to deliver a Safe and Healthy Mobility Strategy and Action Plan for Roads 2021-2030.

EURORAP UK

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 our published reports have provided the basis of new legislation or government policy.

For the last 18 years, the charity has focused on leading the establishment of the European Road Assessment Programme (EuroRAP) and more recently the work first developed by RSF has fed into the International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP). 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 plays a pivotal role in raising awareness and understanding of the importance of road infrastructure at all levels through:

  • Regular publication of EuroRAP safety rating measures which can be understood by the general public, policy makers and professionals alike
  • Issuing guidance on the use of EuroRAP protocols and working with road authorities to improve the safety of the road infrastructure for which they are responsible
  • Proposing the strategies and goals that the Government should set in order to save tens of thousands of lives and disabling injuries

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 orgnaisations including the RAC Foundation, AA, IAM, RoadSafe, PACTS and professional bodies such as ADEPT.
