Britain has some of the world’s lowest road casualty rates. But, in line with our Manifesto commitment, we are determined to do more to make our roads even safer. The British Road Safety Statement, published on 21 December 2015, sets out the government’s priorities for action, including practical measures to help vulnerable groups stay safe on our roads, extra money to crackdown on drug drivers and tougher penalties for people using mobile phones while driving.

In addition, whilst the Department for Transport has not conducted specific work with TfL on the Sarah Hope telephone line, the government does provide funding, via the Ministry of Justice, for support services for victims of road traffic collisions, including a national helpline and information packs.
