Road Safety Foundation
The Road Safety Foundation is a UK charity advocating road casualty reduction through simultaneous action on all three components of the safe road system: roads, vehicles and behaviour.
The charity has enabled work across each of these components and several of its published reports having provided the basis of new legislation or government policy.
For the last decade, the charity has focused on leading the establishment of the European Road Assessment Programme (EuroRAP) in the UK and internationally. Since the inception of EuroRAP in 1999, the Foundation has been the UK member responsible for managing the programme in the UK (and, more recently, Ireland), ensuring the UK provides a global model of what can be achieved.
The Foundation also manages the Campaign for Safe Road Design on behalf of key stakeholders calling for Government commitment to make safe road design a national transport priority.
The Road Safety Foundation is a founder member of the FIA Foundation and frequently works with other FIA members in Britain and abroad. We also work closely with other road safety orgnaisations including the RAC Foundation, AA, IAM, RoadSafe, PACTS and professional bodies such as ADEPT.
