The Road Danger Reduction Charter pledges to:
- Seek a genuine reduction in danger for all road users by identifying and controlling the principal sources of threat.
- Find new measures to define the level of danger on our roads. These would more accurately monitor the use of and threat to benign modes.
- Discourage the unnecessary use of motor transport where alternative benign modes or public transport are equally or more viable.
- Pursue a transport strategy for environmentally sustainable travel based on developing efficient, integrated public transport systems.
This would recognise that current levels of motor traffic should not be increased.
- Actively promote cycling and walking, which pose little threat to other road users, by taking positive and co-ordinated action to increase the safety and mobility of these benign modes.
- Promote the adoption of this charter as the basis of both national and international transport policy.
