MP's report on road safety: more training and more action needed

Jay Nagley

The Transport Select Committee of MPs has criticised the government after the first increase in road deaths for nearly a decade.

1,901 people were killed on Britain's roads last year, which is 51 more than the year before and is the first increase since 2003. Road accidents are the main reason for deaths among the 16-to-24-year-old age group.
