WEL­COME to the sec­ond in­stal­ment of our four-week cam­paign on driv­ing of­fences and stan­dards on UK roads.

This week we spoke to three for­mer traf­fic of­fi­cers to get their views on the bud­get cuts, driv­ing stan­dards and the di­rec­tion in which road polic­ing is cur­rently head­ing.

All three high­lighted that a ded­i­cated traf­fic of­fi­cer on the road can do far more good than a cam­era. Tech plays a role in road safety, the po­lice agreed, but so do traf­fic of­fi­cers.

When asked how they’d im­prove road safety and driv­ing stan­dards, their an­swer was the same: more of­fi­cers on the road.
