Road Safety Foundation – launch new report, commissioned by Ageas, at House of Lords “Making Road Safety Pay”Back

RSF

The Road Safety Foundation have launched a report, sponsored by Aegeas the insurance group. Lord Larry Whitty is the peer who is sponsoring the event in the House of Lords.

The Report will call on the Government to:

1. The Department for Transport should develop a ten year ‘Towards Zero’
strategy for road deaths.

2. The Government should pilot innovative Social Impact Bonds (‘Safety
Bonds’) to finance new safety programmes.

3. The Government should introduce a zero Insurance Premium tax (IPT) rate
for insured vehicles fitted with a telematics unit for drivers under the age
of 25, based on a business case that includes data from real driving
experience given to the charity through Ageas’s partnership with ingenie.

4. Britain should develop a National Older Driver Strategy and create a
taskforce to implement this plan.

5. Low speed Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) should be standard on all
new cars. The EU should mandate low speed AEB as standard on new cars from
2017.

6. Minimum inbuilt safety levels of 4-stars are needed for the busiest
national roads and minimum 3-stars for all other national roads by 2025.

7. Establish an independent Road Safety Inspectorate and raise the safety of
local authority ‘A’ roads to a 3-star minimum level by 2030.
