The Road Safety Foundation is a UK charity advocating road casualty reduction through simultaneous action on all three components of the safe road system: roads, vehicles and behaviour.
The charity has enabled work across each of these components and several of our published reports have provided the basis of new legislation or government policy.
For the last decade, the charity has focused on leading the establishment of EuroRAP in the UK and internationally. Since the inception of EuroRAP in 1999, RSF has been the UK Member responsible for managing the programme in the UK (and, more recently, Ireland), ensuring the UK provides a global model of what can be achieved.
