Calls for action after road deaths rise

MPs are calling for a clearer vision on how to cut the number of road deaths, as latest figures show the first rise since 2003.

A new report from the Transport Committee urges the government to show greater leadership in tackling the issue.

Over 1,900 died in 2011 and is the biggest cause of death amongst young adults aged 16 to 24.

47 people were killed on the roads in Lincolnshire last year, a rise on the previous 12 months.

But the figure is well down on a decade ago, when around 100 people died on our roads each year.
