41 41 This is important Road safety figures are always subject to some variances, but these results seem to be too extreme to be a random spike. We should not claim that we were responsible for all of this improvement. It seems to be a mixture of causalities – weather, recession, driver behaviour, vehicles More research is needed We need a dialogue on how to capture some or all of this improvement We need to inform drivers and vulnerable road users Suggests that we can reduce road deaths still further... if only we understand what is happening. Conclusions
