Road crashes - UK's avoidable epidemic

Road crashes are Britain’s largest cause of premature death, with accidents statistics from the UK showing that half of all fatal collisions occur on just 10% of the country’s road network. Some 10% of the UK’s motorways and A category major roads have an unacceptably high risk according to the data, which comes from the annual road tracking survey carried out by the Road Safety Foundation. One-third of the UK’s fatal and serious collisions occur at junctions: single carriageways are six times more dangerous than motorways and two times more dangerous than dual carriageways, while 1 in 7 primary roads is high risk compared to 1 in 33 non-primary.
