Targeting consistently dangerous roads will save lives - British Results 2006

1 June 2006

Deaths and serious injuries are both routine and predictable year after year on some main roads, according to an AA Motoring Trust study. These roads have languished at the bottom of the safety league table since the AA Trust started tracking safety performance in 2001.

The AA Trust report "How safe are Britain's main roads?" carried out as part of the European Road Assessment Programme (EuroRAP) initiative, shows that the safest roads are up to 10 times safer than the most dangerous. Once again, single-carriageway roads dominate the list of consistently higher risk roads. Motorways are five times safer than the average single-carriageway road and twice as safe as dual carriageways.
