BriSaR Working with road offenders


Bringing Safety on the Roads



The BriSaR project focuses on adapting an existing programme in Portugal (namely STOP – Responsibility and Safety, targeted at Road Code violators) and update it in line with the research evidence and offender expectations. The project will support correctional staff in prison and probation settings to work more effectively with those offenders who have been sentenced for road offences.



  • Reduce convictions for road traffic offences through an evidence-based intervention (including offences like driving without a license, driving an unregistered car, driving a car with forged registration plates, driving dangerously or drunk driving)
  • Encourage the change of attitudes and behaviours associated with drunk driving to the voluntary adoption of alternative behaviours that prevent recidivism
  • Generate more public awareness regarding road safety


Expected outcomes

  • A literature review on road safety and previous programmes
  • Development of the Bringing Safety to the Roads (BriSaR) programme
  • Training for implementing the programme
  • Programme piloting and evaluation
