Report 1 – The Role of the Police
The first report ‘Road Justice: the role of the police’ outlines how cuts to roads policing across England and Wales have had a detrimental effect on road safety. The report makes ten recommendations that, if implemented by the police, can improve the safety of all road users. Eight case studies of victims of road crashes that exemplify problems with police responses to road crime are contained in the report.
Report 2 – Charging and Prosecution
The second report ‘Road Justice: charging and prosecution’ argues that poor charging and prosecution decisions made by the police and Crown Prosecution Service are failing to protect vulnerable road users by enabling bad drivers to return to the roads. Recommendations for improving charging and prosecution practice and case studies highlighting the failures are given.
Report 3 – The Courts and Sentencing
The third report ‘Road Justice: the courts and sentencing’ argues that the courts are treating bad driving far too leniently and issuing sentences that fail to discourage bad driving. Recommendations for ameliorating this situation and case studies highlighting the failures are given.
