Thank you for your interest in the road collision reporting guidelines.

We produced draft Guidelines for a consultation we held in autumn 2020. We were delighted with the level of interest, and the considered and impassioned responses we received, most of which were supportive of our aims. We are currently working on the draft guidelines and plan to launch them during UN global road safety week, 17-23 May 2021. 

The ten Guidelines, which are in the final stages of editing, will speak to core journalistic principles of accuracy, fairness, non-discrimination and justice.

The aim is for the Guidelines to form an “industry standard” by consensus, to help pave the way for better reporting in broadcasting, online and in print.

In the meantime please read our blog explaining the latest developments.
