Data Protection legislation already allows for proportionate sharing of personal data for law enforcement purposes. The legislation also provides mechanisms to do this.
In the Refreshed Road Safety Statement in July 2019 we announced the most comprehensive review of roads policing and this reflects our commitment to continuing to reduce the numbers of people killed and seriously injured on our roads. The exchange of data pertinent to road safety between agencies and organisations is being explored as part of the review.
We will also shortly be launching a Call for Evidence to help us further investigate the link between enforcement, collisions, congestion and crime. Respondents will have the opportunity to outline their views on what could be done to better enable and equip those charged with enforcing traffic laws.
