New-look section fights your corner on key issues
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.
