Road casualties can and should be prevented, but the justice system is failing to promote safety on our roads by not treating road crime as real crime. The police and coroners do not always investigate road collisions thoroughly enough.The prosecution services often make weak charging and prosecution decisions and the courts frequently issue sentences that do not adequately reflect the severity of crimes committed by bad drivers.
In order to make the roads safer, Cycling UK's Road Justice campaign is campaigning for a justice system that discourages bad driving, educates drivers to a higher standard and takes bad drivers off the roads.
Cycling UK and the Cyclists’ Defence Fund, the charity which provides legal support in cases involving cyclists and cycling, have joined forces to campaign for road justice. The Road Justice campaign aims to improve the justice system by ensuring that the police, the prosecution services, the courts and the legal system treats bad driving and bad drivers as seriously as the victims of road crime expect and the interests of road safety demand.
