Road safety campaign spending cut

The DfT is planning to spend only £3.7 million on road safety campaigns in 2012/13

In a Freedom of Information request by the IAM, road safety spending dropped by 80% last financial year and even less will be spent this coming financial year. The breakdown is as follows:

£53,000 spent on cyclist safety
£78,000 on child and teenager road safety
£50,000 on research into young drivers
£1.275 million on motorcycle campaigns; and
£1.685 million on drink-drive campaigns

Director of policy at IAM Neil Greig said “£53,000 is a derisory amount to spend on national cycle safety campaigns. £78,000 for children’s safety campaigns is virtually insignificant”
