10.12 | 12 June 2009 |

The UK is ‘nowhere near’ the position in which the number of road casualties has been reduced to an acceptable level, according to Jim Fitzpatrick the former road safety minister (Surveyor 11/06/09).

Speaking in a parliamentary debate (while still in post), Mr Fitzpatrick conceded it had become harder to improve on recent road safety progress “because, as we reduce the element of risk, we reduce the space in which improvement can be made”.
