The government has cut spending on road safety campaigns from £19 million in 2008/09 to just £4 million in 2011/12 – a cut of nearly 80 per cent.

Furthermore, the DfT is planning on spending just £3.57 million on road safety in the 2012/13 financial year. The figure was revealed after a freedom of information enquiry by road safety charity the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM).
