In a bid to reduce the number of vehicular injuries suffered by people under the age of 25, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has released a report detailing methods to keep the UK's roads safe for young people.

RoSPA brought out a report involving a four-step plan for local authorities to follow to prevent accidents. This will involve looking at current measures, forming a plan for the future, implementing new safety features and testing their performance.

Safety elements such as warning signs, speed limits and more have saved countless lives on the UK's roads, but more needs to be done. The average number of under-25s injured in vehicular accidents is 64,523 each year, a figure RoSPA hopes to reduce.

Dr Ann Hoskins, director for children, young people and families for Public Health England, said: "Whilst unintentional injuries are continuing to fall, there are still too many accidents taking place either in the home or on the roads, many of which are preventable."ADNFCR-2754-ID-801730826-ADNFCR
