Safe Drivers and Vehicles

5,500 people have emailed the Government in support of our 'Road Victims are Real Victims' campaign, and to tell them not to cheat vulnerable road users out of injury compensation.

Road victims are real victims - 15 Dec 2016 - Campaign
Cycling UK’s joint action with partner charities RoadPeace and Living Streets aims to stop changes to civil justice rules, which would leave 70% of cyclists seeking compensation short changed.

 
 
Hit by a car whilst cycling or crossing the road - snapped collarbone - forget fair compensation - the Ministry of Injustice thinks you're a whiplash fraudster! Cycling UK, RoadPeace and Living Streets value road crash victims - and that's why we've launched our "Road victims are real victims" action today. Take part now!

 
 
Plans to reform the claims process used by motorists seeking compensation for whiplash injuries are set to leave cyclists and pedestrians with legal bills if they need to make a claim that’s under £5,000.

 
 
Cycling UK expresses both relief and dismay at the Government’s long-awaited review of road traffic offences and penalties.
