Greater Manchester no longer has a Police and Crime Commissioner. The Mayor of Greater Manchester has now taken responsibility for policing and crime.

Commissioner meets with road safety campaigners

Tony Lloyd with campaigners from the CTC Road Justice campaign

Tony met with campaigners from CTC, the national cycling charity today, who handed him their Road Justice campaign report.

The report looks at the role of roads policing in keeping cyclists safe and ensuring irresponsible drivers are brought to justice. It’s the first of three reports that will also look at the role of prosecutors and the courts in making our roads safe.

“This report highlights a very real issue of safety on our roads. Road users often get a bad name because of a minority who have no regard for the law and their fellow drivers or cyclists. The reality is that we all have a role to play to make our roads safer, whether we are behind the wheel, on a bicycle or responsible for enforcing traffic laws, and we all need to work together if we are to truly address this issue.”

You can read the report on the CTC website.
