The Government is to pilot the use of investigation teams dedicated to analysing the cause of road collisions.
The RAC Foundation, which has championed the idea, will lead the trial, supported by £480,000 of Government funding. The Foundation will work alongside the DfT, Highways England, the DVSA and the police, carrying out in-depth research in selected cases to get a better understanding of accident causation. Collisions will be analysed in three regions over three years.
RAC Foundation director Steve Gooding said: “We are keen to seize the opportunity to work with the DfT, the police and others to explore the scope for learning more about the causes of road crashes that continue to blight – and curtail – so many lives, in particular to establish the practicalities, costs and full benefits of tackling and pre-empting them more effectively.”
