Have your say on road policing

Local people are being encouraged to complete a national online survey to understand their views on road safety and policing.

The Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC) has launched the public engagement survey to help the Government review road policing – and what the future of traffic law enforcement might look like.

Residents’ responses will help police forces better understand local people’s views on road safety. 

Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner, Sue Mountstevens, said: “Whenever I meet with local people, one concern is always discussed: road safety.

“Whether the issue is speeding, collisions, drink driving or use of mobile phones, many local people across the force area have strong opinions about policing our roads.

“Now is the time to share your thoughts and complete the short national survey.

“You will be helping PCCs understand your concerns and, in turn, providing the Government the information it needs to review the current rules concerning road safety and enforcement.”

APCC Lead for Road Safety, Alison Hernandez, said: “PCCs have a strong voice in local communities and are eager to understand the public’s views on road safety and policing our roads.

“This survey will allow PCCs to assess the strength of public feeling to make our roads safer and, I hope, give the government the evidence it needs to act.” 

The 60-second survey will be open until 5pm on Wednesday 30 September. To take part visit:
