Roads: Police

Question for Department for Transport

UIN 26159, tabled on 6 March 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, with reference to the Road safety statement 2019: a lifetime of road safety, published in July 2019, what progress his Department has made on the review on roads policing.

Answered on

Good progress is being made on the review on roads policing, including on the inspection of roads policing and a Call for Evidence to run alongside that inspection.

Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) have completed their thematic review of roads policing in seven police forces and will be issuing a publicly available report in due course.

The Department will be publishing the Call for Evidence shortly.

Consideration will then be given to the responses and we would expect to produce the final report on roads policing once all the evidence has been considered.
