Road Justice

Introduction

Road Justice supported by Slater & Gordon Lawyers

Road casualties can and should be prevented, yet the justice system is failing to ensure safety on our roads by not taking road crime seriously. The police and coroners do not investigate road collisions thoroughly enough; the prosecution services make weak charging and prosecution decisions, and the courts issue sentences that do not adequately reflect the severity of crimes committed by bad drivers.

In order to make the roads safer, CTC's Road Justice campaign is campaigning for a justice system that discourages bad driving, educates drivers to a higher standard and takes bad drivers off the roads.

Please sign the Road Justice petition calling on police forces in England and Wales to take bad driving seriously by improving roads policing.

CTC, the national cycling charity, and the Cyclists’ Defence Fund, the charity which provides legal support to fight cases involving cyclists and cycling, have joined forces to campaign for road justice. The Road Justice campaign aims to fix the justice system by pressuring the police, the prosecution services, the courts and the law itself to treat bad driving and bad drivers with the severity they warrant.
