Handing in its first petition to the police was an important moment for CTC's ongoing Road Justice Campaign (see 'Headlines' below).
Prosecutors, the courts and sentencing are also in sight this year - poor collision investigation, inexplicable charging and prosecution decisions, and lenient sentencing must become a thing of the past.
Keep yourself updated and add your voice to the campaign by signing up as a Road Justice supporter.
