Better justice and enforcement is a key theme in our road safety manifesto and is an issue which many of our members feel strongly about.
We have joined forces with Cycling Weekly and many other organisations to call on the Lord Chancellor and his colleagues at the Department for Transport and the Home Office to start a comprehensive review of how the justice system operates when people are hurt or killed on the road.
We're campaigning for:
1. A full analysis of the way that the police and coroners investigate these cases
2. Review of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) charging standards
3. A full examination of the offences available to the CPS.
4. A review of the sentencing guidelines to ensure they adequately reflect the actual or potential consequences of the offence.
