A CHARITY which supports the family and friends of victims of fatal road traffic collisions has welcomed the fall in road deaths in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough last year.
The number of road deaths fell from 33 in 2011 to 31 in 2012, but the Road Victims Trust says more should be done to reduce this number further.
Chief executive Steve Ottaway said: “It is encouraging that the number of road deaths continues to fall however each death affects family, friends, colleagues and witnesses all of whom need support.
“Our service supports people through their darkest hours till they have been able to process their grief and get their lives back into a stable position.
“We are there for them as long as they find it useful which can be three months or two years.

“Although much of our service is delivered by our wonderful volunteers we do need financial support to continue.”
