The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Cycling and Walking (APPGCW) launched this report addressing the issue of road justice. In 2017 the All-Party Parliamentary Cycling Group conducted a significant inquiry looking at cycling and the justice system. With active travel more important than ever on the policy agenda, they felt it prudent to revisit that inquiry and provide this updated report.
It includes 10 key recommendations and a summary of progress on those from the previous inquiry, and will form the basis of their campaigning on this important issue in Parliament. APPGCW says it is all too common to hear of an appalling case of road violence in which one or more people have either lost their lives or suffered life changing injuries – only for the perpetrator to receive a shockingly low sentence and / or driving licence penalty. APPGCW says it is this imbalance between the action and the consequences that requires correcting in order to see true road justice.
