TRANSPORT MINISTER Dr Stephen Ladyman has thrown his weight behind two new road safety reports published by The Motorists' Forum.
The first.Road Safety and Speed Management, urges closer cooperation between road safety groups, including employers, the road transport industry and the government in a bid to cut road deaths, which average nine a day.
Among the measures it suggests are clearer speed limit signs, road safety training in the national curriculum, and a greater police presence on the roads.
The second report, Improving Work-Related Road Safety, recommends greater emphasis on road safety at company board level, including introducing risk management strategies and reappraisal of employees' road safety awareness.
Ladyman has welcomed the reports as a clear indication of practical ways to reduce accidents on UK roads. And he promises: "The government will take on board the messages set out today."
