Cllr John Taylor criticised the West Yorkshire Mayor's pointless zero vision for accidents on our roads and called for action on enforcement by the Police rather than empty rhetoric.
Speaking at the Economy and Neighbourhoods Scrutiny Panel, Cllr Taylor said
That the only way poor driving behaviours could be realistically tackled is by more enforcement and this was an issue that was raised with him on a weekly basis on the doorstep across the Kirkburton ward.
The Council needs to raise the profile of road safety and policing of speeding with the Police and push them to give this a higher priority than it currently receives.
If we wish to make our roads safer for all users, drivers, cyclists, riders and pedestrians we need to make those who break the law fearful of being caught, it is only the fear of being caught and prosecuted that will see changes in behaviour
