Take another look: Amey & Central Bedfordshire Council (DOP: 5/11)

Read document description

The Amey and Central Bedfordshire Council partnership launched its ‘Take another look’ campaign on 11th May 2011, which encourages car drivers to look thoroughly for motorcyclists whilst on the roads. By raising car drivers' awareness of motorcyclists, it aims to improve biker’s safety on the roads across the county. At the launch event on Wednesday 11th May, which coincided with the global launch of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety, Central Bedfordshire Council, Amey, local organisations and individuals came together at Toddington Service Station on the M1 to demonstrate their long-term support. The 'Take another look' campaign saw the launch of www.seeingbikers.com, a website which provides information, research and the theory behind the reasons why motorists might not see motorcyclists on the roads. Factors such as ‘motion camouflage’, conspicuity and intentional blindness are explained and real life stories of local bikers that have lost their lives on the roads are used to bring home the message ‘Take another look’. The campaign was independently evaluated by the University of Bedfordshire and preliminary finding suggest that more than half of driver’s surveyed had seen the road side posters and it was ascertained that 54.4% recalled a message asking them to look out for bikers.

Traffic in Villages Toolkit

Read document description

Traffic in Villages is a new publication produced by Dorset AONB Partnership and written by Hamilton-Baillie Associates. It has been written as a toolkit to help Parish Councils and local groups understand the core principles for reducing speed, improving safety and retaining local distinctiveness. We hope that Traffic in Villages will help develop new working relationships between communities and highway authorities by equiping communities with the tools to look closely at their issues and begin to consider new solutions. It is illustrated with case studies and practical advice and includes a checklist to help local surveys. The Toolkit extends the key principles of Manual for Streets and Manual for Streets 2 to support rural communities coping with the impact of traffic in villages and small towns.

Infrastructure and Cyclist Safety

Read document description

The Department for Transport commissioned TRL to conduct a literature review to consider the role of infrastructure in the causation and reduction of injuries to cyclists. It was undertaken as part of the wider research programme, Road User Safety and Cycling, being led by TRL. Overall, it proved problematic to draw definitive conclusions from the literature. Taken as a whole, the most significant infrastructure-related risk factors for cyclists in single vehicle incidents on highways appear to be; slippery road (due to weather), and poor or defective road surface. For multi-vehicle collisions the infrastructure risk factors appear to be; posted speed limits, and encounters with other road users at junctions.

Accessible train and station design for disabled people

Read document description

Under s.71B of the Railways Act 1993 the Secretary of State maintains a Code of Practice to protect the interests of disabled people travelling by rail. All passenger train station operators are encouraged to use the document, and those who are licensed must follow its standards. Accessible Train Station Design for Disabled people: A Code of Practice Version 01, published in July 2008, replaced the previous version published by the Strategic Rail Authority, and incorporated a clearer structure, more-up-to-date guidance, and standards mirroring new European rules. This new Version 03 of the Code of Practice (valid from November 2011) replaces all previous versions. It provides standards and guidance for accessibility at railway stations, updated to more accurately reflect the BS8300 changes in 2009, and should be used by all train and station operators whenever they carry out works on their facilities.
