The Enabling Environment

As with many colleagues, we are frustrated by the speed of progress in addressing a key social policy area and left wondering why, in this age of rapid technological transformation, the UK has been slow to deliver advancements. In this brief Think Piece, Agilysis chairman, Dan Campsall, explores the qualities of an Enabling Enviroment. 

The challenges presented in this piece are not exclusive to transport safety and the suggested remedies have wider application as well. They are, however, worthy of consideration if we want to create the dynamic, data driven, multi-sectoral work that embraces technology and serves to ‘crowd in’ expertise and innovation to improve road safety.

The Safe System view recognises the importance of ‘Shared Responsibility’ and integrated responses. This means we have to be more ambitious about bringing policy makers, sectoral leaders, data scientists, vehicle technologists, design engineers, behavioural scientists, communications professionals, organisational psychologists and many others together, but that requires someone to set the agenda and create the space for a more engaging interdisciplinary dialogue.

The Enabling Environment is a discussion about the quality of the space we need to create.

Why do we need 20mph?

Explore the transformative impact of 20mph speed limits with insights from Wales and beyond. Recent data reveals a significant reduction in road casualties following the implementation of 20mph limits in Wales, underscoring their potential to enhance road safety. Agilysis's Traffic Insights report using connected vehicle data highlighted a 2.4mph reduction in average speeds. This aligns with the broader trend of adopting Vision Zero and Safe System methodologies, which prioritize human safety by setting speed limits that reduce fatality risks for pedestrians and cyclists. Discover how these changes are making roads safer and what further measures can be implemented for greater impact.
