Observatory team conducts user survey

The Road Safety Observatory project team is conducting a user survey to establish how useful the resource is, and to inform how it might develop in the future.

The Road Safety Observatory provides easy, free of charge 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 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.

The Observatory works in collaboration with the Road Safety Knowledge Centre, a comprehensive online library of road safety information and resources.

Kevin Clinton, Road Safety Observatory project manager, said: “Responses to the survey are anonymous and will be treated as confidential, and as such we are asking people to be honest in their responses.

“The feedback we receive will only be used to help inform the development of the Road Safety Observatory and its website."

The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete and the closing date for doing so is Wednesday 26 November 2014. Everyone who completes the survey by this date will be entered for a prize draw to win £50 Love to Shop vouchers.

    My field of research is the effect of speed cameras so this is the section I read in the Road Safety Observatory website. I found that much of the research they included is incomplete and could appear to have been chosen to support one view. Many of their statements are unsubstantiated and some are even a false reading of the evidence. Some of the best quality evidence is not included and the summaries presented therefore may be quite strongly biased.

    To be fair to the Road Safety Observatory, I have not informed them of my research so perhaps they are simply unaware of this and other work. In fact it was precisely because reports such as those they reference had demonstrated that further work on RTM was essential that I performed my work.
