Reduce peak congestion

This one is not specifically about road safety but about our road network and use of it. For example - if we had more flexible working across more organisations, 'peak' traffic would be reduced as not everyone would be trying to get to work and park for 9am and same for getting home between 5pm and 6pm. 

Flexi time, working from home or other locations depending on the needs of businesses, park and ride, bike schemes, encouraging electric bicycle use, car sharing etc could all help reduce the numbers of cars on the roads. 

Why the contribution is important

Thinking more holistically about our road and other transport networks could help reduce frustration and dangerous driving behaviours that result from this. 

Linking in with active travel is good for our health services as well.

    The schools play a big part in morning congestion so it would be better if they started earlier or later to allow the traffic to flow instead of it coming to a grinding halt every morning. Whenever the schools are on holiday, the difference is immense.

    Yes - I completely forgot about schools. You're right - the difference is massive when the schools are off.
