Three new reviews of evidence have been added to The Road Safety Observatory, and a further review has progressed from draft to finished status.
The Road Safety Observatory provides easy access to independent road safety research and information for anyone working in road safety, and for members of the public. It provides summaries and reviews of research on a wide range of road safety issues, along with links to the original reports.
The information in the Observatory is provided free of charge and there is no need to register to use it.
In addition, the “Eyesight and Driving” review (Drivers’ section), which had been on the site in draft format, has been replaced with a finalised version.
The Observatory is managed by a Programme Board which comprises representatives from road safety stakeholders including DfT, RoSPA, RoadSafe, PACTS, RAC Foundation, Road Safety GB, CIHT, ACPO, ADEPT and CFOA.
The Programme Board commissions research reviews from a wide range of researchers and road safety experts. The reviews are intended to be free from bias and independent of Government policies. They represent a summary of the best evidence readily available to the research community and are kept under review as new evidence emerges.
