Why now?

The Department for Transport is currently running a Cycle Safety Review, and has launched a 'call for evidence' that forms part of a wider consultation on road safety issues related to cycling and walking.

What are the issues?

It invites those with an interest in improving safety and perception of safety for cyclists and pedestrians to provide evidence, drawing on experience from the UK or other countries, that can be used to shape future policy decisions. The six key consultation themes are:

  • how to improve safety through changes to road infrastructure
  • the law and rules of the road
  • road user training and testing
  • education
  • vehicles and equipment
  • attitudes, understanding and awareness of different road users

Why we need your insight

The scope of the consultation considers the wider societal benefits of cycling and walking, perceptions of safety – especially for vulnerable road users – and the common misunderstandings and differences of opinion between cyclists and other modes/road users.

Understanding this complexity, the Department for Transport is keen to engage with a wide range of stakeholders, and members of the public, and is facilitating these workshop events to discuss the issues. We invite anyone with an interest in improving safety for cyclists and pedestrians to join us.
