The Association of Police and Crime Commissioners has launched a public survey to help gather the public’s view points on road safety, road laws, fixed penalties and law enforcement. The findings will be fed back to the Home Office and Department of Transport who are currently reviewing roads policing and the future of roads law enforcement.
The survey is eight questions long and takes on average 60 seconds to complete. Anyone is free to complete the survey which can be found at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/apccsaferoads. The survey closes on Wednesday 30 September 2020 at 5pm.
Cumbria’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Peter McCall, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the public to give their honest opinion around road law enforcement which will help mould future laws and regulations.
“As PCC anti-social driving is one of the biggest issues that is constantly raised with me to take back to the Chief Constable so I wholly encourage everyone to take the time to fill this survey in.
“Cumbria is no stranger to dangerous driving and the Constabulary do a fantastic job to deter this as best as possible but it is a community effort that is needed to eradicate road accidents and road deaths in the county.
“We all need to follow the rules of the road by driving to the road limits, eliminate distractions such as mobile phones and be courteous to other drivers.
“This survey really is an opportunity to express opinions and really influence the future laws in the UK so please fill out the survey above and help the country and Cumbria become an even safer place to travel.”
Superintendent Andy Wilkinson said: “We support Mr McCall in his efforts to identify any concerns people have around driving in Cumbria.
“Most of us are road users at some point, so road safety and the reduction of collisions are always important – and something we take extremely seriously.”
