For each of the past two months a record number of people have visited the Road Safety GB website – and the number of visits to the site has increased by 43% year on year.

In October 2012, the Road Safety GB website attracted 17,726 visits, beating the previous high of 15,678 which was achieved the previous month. At 10,373, the number of unique visitors in October is also a record, surpassing the previous best of 9,219 in September 2012.

The comparable numbers in October 2011 were 12,373 visits and 7,095 unique visitors, meaning the figures have increased by 43% and 46% respectively.

The most read news item of October was about the Government refusing to rule out a motorway speed limit increase, despite the transport secretary appearing less attracted to the idea than his predecessor.

    May I congratulate Road Safety GB on your success demonstrated by increasing website visits but it’s not just the numbers, the visitors are generally very well informed.

    Road Safety GB attracts many RSPs, independent researchers and road safety campaigners to come together to express their views and discuss evidence. The open debate on the news feed often throws up interesting and informed opinions, often with evidence being referenced and explained. This open and inclusive approach makes Road Safety GB truly unique amongst road safety organisations and a valuable asset for all of road safety.

    Your efforts are appreciated. Well done and keep up the good work!
