PACTS:UK Road Safety Summit

Wednesday, 18 March 2015

This summit organised by PACTS will support the government’s launch of its new road safety legislation, bringing together politicians, civil servants, police, equipment providers, safety marketing experts and other key stakeholders.

In March 2015 major new legislation to counter drug-driving will come into effect across Great Britain.

Drink-drive legislation is also being tightened: legal loopholes are being closed and in Scotland the breath-test limit has been lowered recently.

Drug screeners and evidential breath-test roadside equipment for police use may soon get Home Office approval.

The government has talked about increasing the penalty for using a hand-held mobile phone while driving:

  • How will the new laws and equipment be used?
  • Are campaigns reaching women drivers?
  • How can dangers of driver distraction be addressed
