This month marks the first anniversary of Autocar's campaign to change the government's approach to road safety; it's been 12 months since, in tandem with the RAC Foundation, we launched Talking Sense on Speed. Now our efforts are bearing fruit, and you can find out exactly how by reading our road safety campaign update, in this week's magazine.

'On top of the constant stream of support from Autocar readers, the campaign has attracted the wider media's attention,' writes Paul Barker. 'This gave rise to a press coverage reach of 34m people, radio coverage reaching 690m and TV coverage for 200m through the 250 interviews conducted, according to evaluation specialists Media Measurement.'

'The Government is now heading towards the conclusion of its consultation into establishing a nationwide standard for speed-awareness courses,' he continues 'and Transport Secretary Alistair Darling has publicly backed the idea.'

Driven this week

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
