To evaluate the effectiveness of enforcement in Hampshire and the Thames Valley.
The project team undertook four distinct tasks:
A literature review
An analysis of driver offence data
An analysis of collision data
- A series of compliance surveys
Data suggested that special focus should be given to offenders who are male and under the age of 30.
Speed was found to be a particular problem during evenings and weekend; the combination of engineering solutions and fixed speed cameras could help alleviate the issue.
Seat belt wearing rates are generally high.
Mobile phone use has increased in recent years with males being more likely to use a mobile phone while driving.
