Posted on 21 December 2017

Dr Helen Wells (Senior Lecturer in Criminology) and Leanne Savigar (PhD student in Criminology) have been awarded £75,000 by the Road Safety Trust for a project entitled ‘Innovators and innovations in preventing mobile phone use while driving: sharing and improving practice’. 

The 13 month project, which uses a knowledge exchange methodology, will start in January 2018 and will explore a range of current initiatives being implemented across the UK to reduce mobile phone use by drivers – arguably one of the biggest challenges facing the road safety community at the present time. The project will encourage practitioners to engage with academic research to help them design research-informed projects and to plan for meaningful evaluations of them.

Many congratulations to Helen.
