A history of RoadPeace
RoadPeace was founded in 1992 by Brigitte Chaudhry after her 26 year-old son was killed by a red light offender. It was set up in response to the desperate need of road crash victims for timely information, immediate and long-term support and practical help with legal proceedings.
Formed in February 1992. RoadPeace had its public launch on 7 April 1993, the United Nations' World Health Organisation Day dedicated to ‘the prevention of accidents and injuries’. This day was chosen to focus attention on the many thousands of preventable deaths and hundreds of thousands of injuries on Britain's roads. In the same month, RoadPeace received charitable status.
RoadPeace has the dual purpose of providing support to the bereaved and injured, and campaigning for justice.
