The RoSPA National Accident Prevention Strategy calls for lower speeds in built-up areas, and the promotion of active travel as a positive option.

Thge strategy also says the needs of vulnerable road users must become a priority in local planning processes if the road deaths and serious injuries are to be reduced.

The strategy aims to achieve a step-change in the delivery of evidence-based accident prevention programmes across England, promote safe and active lives and reduce the burden of serious accidental injury on society.

The strategy also calls for:

Pedestrian training for children at Key Stages 1 and 2
The collection of work-related road accident statistics
Help for employers to manage occupational road risk
Self-assessment tools to enable older drivers to stay on the road safely for longer
Action to improve young driver safety
