Road deaths increase for first time in a decade
The government has been criticised for a lack of leadership after the first increase in road deaths for nearly a decade.
The report by the Transport Select Committee also highlights the fact that road accidents are the main killer among 16-to-24-year-olds.
The committee calls for more help to keep young drivers and cyclists safe and to improve the design of roads.
The government says road safety continues to be a top priority.
