The Roads Policing Review was part of the Government’s response to the plateauing of road casualties since 2010. The review has brought together 16 organisations to look at the policing of our roads and how that can improve road safety. These include DVLA, DVSA, The National Police Chiefs’ Council and the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners. The Review is identifying ways to increase capability and capacity across a range of agencies. This review will not only highlight where police forces are doing good work, it will show what more can be done to improve road safety.

The call for evidence saw 149 responses submitted. We will publish once we have given the responses our full consideration.
