According to Department for Transport figures published this month, road deaths increased to 1,760 deaths in the year up to June 2014, an increase of 3% compared to the previous 12 months.
There were some 24,580 people killed or seriously injured on the roads in the year ending in June 2014, a 4% increase on the previous year.
In the year ending in June 2014, there were 193,290 reported road casualties of all types, 4% higher than the previous year.
Some would argue that these figures may suggest an over-reliance on automatic traffic camera enforcement and under-reliance on active enforcement by police patrols, as well as insufficient education and training for road users, particularly newly qualified drivers.
