£1m pa Dorset Road Safe staff includes £37k "Communications Manager!" 

A recent FOI request has revealed that the staffing costs of Dorset Road Safe total £1m per year. The total cost of DRS (from "local transport funds") is £2.5m pa. Other road policing costs total £5.1m. So DRS takes a sizable chunk of the total spend on road safety in Dorset.

I’ve been trying to communicate with Dorset Road Safe for about 5 years, never have I been made aware that there is a “Communications Manager” or received any kind of meaningful or complete communications from anyone at “Dorset Road Safe” or DSCP as it was before. Adrian Whiting has been an excellent communicator but only speaking for the police involvement in DRS. The staff list and salary scales are below.

Perhaps it is clearer to see now (with departments not wanting to be seen to be loss making) why profits of £ millions, and therefore operations like greed on green, are so important to Dorset Road Safe. 

Given the obsolete, narrow minded approach of Dorset Road Safe, it’s cost, and it’s obsession with ineffective speed cameras and operations that seem optimised for raising cash rather than reducing costly (in financial and human terms) accidents, it’s inability / disinterest to stand up for it’s own actions or to move forward, this has to be the easiest £2.5 million per annum to save, or to redirect into proper road policing.
