Road user safety and disadvantage: findings

report
posted on 17.02.2011 by Clare Lowe, Liz Sutton, Grahame Whitfield, Jeremy Hardin
It has been shown that there is a relationship between socio-economic disadvantage and the risk of being killed or injured on the road. Children and young people from disadvantaged areas are at greater risk, particularly when walking, compared with those from relatively affluent areas. This research involved a detailed exploration of the populations, environment, behaviour and attitudes in disadvantaged communities, looking for key areas of commonality. It also explored road safety provision for disadvantaged communities, whether inequality is recognised and addressed and the extent to which agencies work in partnership. The investigation provided lessons for road safety delivery, focusing on environmental and engineering solutions.
