With the highest ever number of visits and unique visitors, July was a record-breaking month for the Road Safety Knowledge Centre.
Launched in September 2010, the ‘Knowledge Centre’ is a comprehensive online directory of road safety information and resources. It is owned and managed by Road Safety GB and financially supported by Colas.
Last month, the Knowledge Centre received 2,646 visits, breaking the previous record of 2,427, achieved in January 2011 when the website was in its infancy. In July, the Knowledge Centre attracted 1,216 unique visitors, a significant increase of more than 30% on the previous high of 927, achieved in January 2012.
Nick Rawlings, Knowledge Centre project manager, said: “It is very pleasing to see that the number of people using Knowledge Centre continues to increase. This is a clear indication that road safety professionals are finding it a very useful resource in their important work.
“Last month we introduced a number of enhancements to the Knowledge Centre, and while it is tempting to put the steep increase in traffic down to these changes, in truth it is probably too soon to do so.”
Access to the Knowledge Centre is free of charge and available to all. There are currently 3,002 subscribers, 415 member organisations, and 1,741 items listed in the Knowledge Centre.
