Norfolk road safety views needed for national review
Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Lorne Green, is encouraging the county’s residents to share their views on road safety in order to help inform a Government review.
The Home Office and Department for Transport are currently reviewing roads policing and what the future of traffic law enforcement may look like.
In order to capture views from across the country, the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners has launched a short survey.
PCC Lorne Green is urging Norfolk residents to take the opportunity to have their say and help inform national policy aimed at making roads safer.
“The safety of our roads is something which affects everyone; for those whose lives have been impacted by dangerous or reckless driving the effect could be truly devastating.
“When speaking with Norfolk residents, road safety regularly comes up as a key concern and, as such, is one of the priorities in my Police and Crime Plan for our county.
“From supporting enforcement and awareness activity by police and community-led Speedwatch schemes, to collaborating with partners on best use of tools such as safety cameras and educating young drivers on the dangers of the road, I have been committed to doing all I can to make our roads safer for all who use them.
“But some changes, such as the powers and penalties the police can use in enforcing the law and the flexibility local areas have to deal with the issues affecting them, need to come from the top. This is an important opportunity for Norfolk residents’ views to be heard and taken into account by this Government review.
“I’d urge all Norfolk residents to take the time to complete this short survey and ensure their views are understood and voices heard.”
The Association of Police and Crime Commissioners’ survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/apccsaferoads and will run until 30 September 2020.
