Roads: Accidents

Volume 495: debated on Monday 6 July 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what recent assessment has been made of the effectiveness of the West Midlands Casualty Reduction Scheme in reducing numbers of road traffic accidents in that region. (283847)

The Department for Transport has not made a specific, recent assessment of the effectiveness of the West Midlands safety enforcement camera partnership (also known as the West Midlands Casualty Reduction Scheme), which covers the West Midlands metropolitan area.

In 2008 the West Midlands metropolitan area authorities reviewed their overall progress delivering their second local transport plan, including in respect of road safety. The Government office for the West Midlands region, in conjunction with the Department for Transport, commented on this review in a letter dated 9 January 2009. This can be viewed at:
