RoSPA calls for lighter nights to be introduced across Britain

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has claimed that lighter nights could help to lower the increasing number of road deaths.

It believes that an extra hour of evening daylight could help to reduce road deaths significantly, as they jumped last year by three per cent to 1,901.

RoSPA has claimed that lighter evenings would also serve to cut carbon emissions, improve tourism, create jobs and encourage more participation in sports.

The organisation recently called for bosses to analyse the experience of young drivers at work during the recruitment stage, after it found that there are problems with road experience among new recruits.

Tom Mullarkey, RoSPA’s chief executive, said: "The recent rise in deaths has highlighted an urgent need to find other ways to reduce casualties on our roads. And this is why I strongly urge MPs from across the UK to look again at supporting a move to Single/Double Summer Time."ADNFCR-2754-ID-801478543-ADNFCR
