The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) is urging academics to apply for funding to research ways to improve road safety for motor insurance customers.

More than GBP500,000 is available to fund studies into saving lives and reducing injuries, with key areas including improving driving standards of younger people and cutting the number of fatigue-related accidents.

The deadline for applications is April 12th and RoSPA is urging those who have ideas on how to improve the roads to come forward and share their vision on how car insurance customers can commute in a safer manner.

Tom Mullarkey, chief executive at the organisation, said it is crucial that the best brains available come together and develop ways of reducing accidents and improving road safety.

"We are looking for pioneering research schemes that will give us insight and information in our mission to save lives and reduce injuries. We received a wide range of strong applications during the first round of funding and are looking forward to the same diversity and quality this time around," he added.
