Road safety campaigners hope the jailing of a motorist who lied about his eyesight and went on to kill a 93-year-old woman on a pedestrian crossing in Lincoln sends a strong message to any driver that tries to drive a vehicle against the advice of a doctor.
Here's John Siddle from the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership.
A hard-hitting campaign aims to show the potentially deadly consequences of using a mobile phone behind the wheel.
Police have released footage of a devastating crash on the M62 - in which two people were killed - in the hope of making motorists think before making or taking a call. It's part of their latest initiative to cut deaths on West Yorkshire's roads. Ben Erlam reports.
Drivers in West Yorkshire are being targeted in a new scheme to educate them about the "fatal four".
The Roads Policing Units have identified excess speed, drink/drug driving, not wearing a seatbelt and distractions like mobile phone use as the main causes of serious or fatal accidents on our roads.
Each week in November will be devoted to one of the fatal four with officers hoping to educate people in West Yorkshire to try and reduce the number of fatal and serious accidents they are called to deal with.
Road safety campaigners fear we don't check our tyres often enough and the accident figures for our region seem to bear that out.
According to the Department for Transport, there were more than 120 road accidents in our region last year where illegal, defective or under inflated tyres caused or contributed to the crash. So are we putting our lives and those of other road users at risk? Matt Price reports.
