Scotland's Road Safety Framework

A robust, independent, and open evidence base helps us provide clear evidence of the effectiveness and the impact our road safety interventions are having.

An understanding of how road safety interventions function – both in terms of their effectiveness in delivering outputs, aims and objectives, and the eventual broader impacts on road safety – is essential to inform strategic decision-making and the allocation of resources. Without an understanding of what is working well, and what is working less well, it is not possible to systematically improve road safety.

The Road Safety Evaluation Fund focuses on the retrospective evaluation and the wider impact interventions are having on road safety.

The call for Evaluation funding applications closed on 7 March 2022.
