Road Danger Reduction Forum
Those behind the RDRF were professionals working in local
government as Road Safety Officers, highway and traffic engineers, officers
working to promote sustainable transport, with support from Councillors in a
number of local authorities.
The thrust behind
setting out the Road Danger Reduction (RDR) agenda was – and continues to be
– dissatisfaction with various elements of the official “road safety”
establishment, arguing that this is often very much part of the problem of
danger on the road.
