ABD Slams Government Record on Road Safety
"Change The Medicine. It's Not Working."
The Department For Transport today announced that road traffic levels fell by 0.7% but road deaths only fell by 0.5% in the year to September 2011. 1

ABD Chairman Brian Gregory comments:
“This effective increase in road deaths per mile travelled is an abysmal indictment of the failed government medicine of the last decade or more. Despite massive improvements in car safety features which must have saved lives, the government plods on with the tired old policy of focus on speed limit enforcement as almost its sole road safety strategy whilst completely ignoring all other factors which cause the vast majority of crashes. The medicine isn't working, the answer is not more of the same medicine!.”
