Campaigning for justice
Over the years, Roadpeace has campaigned for improved investigations. This includes through working groups and consultations.
We make the case. From its start, RoadPeace has used the evidence collected from helping victims to shape its calls. This included the 150 case studies we compiled for the Independent Working Group set up by Victim Support in 1992. Most of the recommendations in the subsequent 1994 report Support for the families of road death victims focused on the police collision investigation. Transparency, accountability, priority and national standards were early calls. National standards were a key call for our Justice Campaign, launched in 1998.
RoadPeace launched a Collision Investigation campaign in June 2016. This started with a review of road death investigation, including from the victims’ perspective.
