Warwickshire residents urged to have their say on roads policing

WARWICKSHIRE residents are being urged to take part in a national poll on how the roads are policed and how it can be improved.

Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe is encouraging people in the county to respond to the survey, organised by the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners, which asks for the public’s perceptions of the enforcement of traffic laws, risks to road safety and fixed penalty notices.

Results from the survey – thought to be the first national poll co-ordinated by PCCs – will be fed into a Department for Transport Call for Evidence, which seeks to find out what makes a difference to road safety and how the capability and capacity of enforcement agencies can be enhanced.

Mr Seccombe said: “Road safety has been high on my agenda here in Warwickshire for some time, as the number of people being killed or seriously injured on our roads – while showing signs of improvement – is still far too high.

“The Government is currently reviewing roads policing and what the future of traffic law enforcement could look like, so it’s really important that local people are heard as part of that review.

“I’m keen that as many voices from Warwickshire as possible should feed into the submission to government that is made by the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners, so please do log on and take the survey.”
