Motion text

That this House notes the 8,189 young people aged 16 to 25 who have been killed on UK roads in the last 10 years; recognises the urgent need for the House to act to prevent more such needless and tragic deaths; further recognises the opportunity that the UN Decade of Action on Road Safety, which commences on 11 May 2011, offers to this House to take a bold step towards preventing young deaths on the road in the next decade; further notes the evidence that a system of Graduated Driver Licensing, encompassing a minimum learning period and a restricted novice driving period, would help to reduce road casualties; further recognises that such a step has the support of road safety charity Brake and the Association of British Insurers; and congratulates Brake forits work to promote road safety and support people who have been bereaved or seriously injured in a road crash.
