A road safety organisation is offering grants to explore how technology can reduce road offending and improve road safety.

The Road Safety Trust is the largest road safety grant giver in the UK and funds vital research and practical interventions committed to reducing the number of people killed or injured on UK roads.

Since it was established in 2014, the Road Safety Trust has awarded grants worth £2.7m to 35 different projects.

Grants are available for up to two or three years depending on the programme, and can range from £10,000 up to £200,000.

‘Developing and emerging technologies have a huge impact on the way that we live,’ said Sally Lines, chief executive of Road Safety Trust.

‘We want to use the 2020 grant scheme to really explore and benefit from the use of technology to improve road safety and in turn help us work towards our vision of zero deaths and serious injuries on UK roads.

‘We would like to see a focus on the innovation that is happening throughout the UK and help fund in-vehicle, infrastructure or new technological applications or tools.

‘We want to see funding applications that address a specific road safety problem and explain why it has been identified.’

The Major Grants Programme will be open for applications until 14 May.
