The draft guidelines are produced by the University of Westminster’s Active Travel Academy in collaboration with national roads policing, academics and experts in the field, road safety charities, and the National Union of Journalists’ ethics council, and advised by IMPRESS.
The Guidelines’ four main clauses speak to core journalistic principles of accuracy, fairness, non-discrimination and justice.
The guidelines, if adopted, will form an “industry standard” to help pave the way for better reporting in broadcasting, online and in print.
We are currently working through the consultation responses and will have updates in Spring.
