Dangerous roads see drop in crash rate

The number of accidents on some of the UKâ??s car crash hotspots has dropped considerably, thanks to improved traffic management.
Dangerous roads see drop in crash rate

Research by the Road Safety Foundation, sponsored by insurance provider Ageas, has indicated that on the 10 most improved roads, rates of fatal and serious crashes have dropped by more than 50%.

The figure stood at 541 between 2001 and 2005, and this has fallen to 209 for the period between 2006 and 2010.

A long single carriageway section of the A605, in Cambridgeshire, saw the most significant drop of any road, with accidents dropping from 34 to 9.

The improved traffic management in place is likely to have saved a number of lives, as well as an estimated £35 million a year.  Road layouts have been altered, with new signals, speed cameras and warning signs added as well, all contributing to the positive change on the danger roads.

Joanne Marden, director for the Road Safety Foundation, said: “Even a modest ambition to improve these sections of road - so they simply get an 'average' risk rating and became six times more risky than motorways - would save many lives and cost savings to the economy of £20 million annually.”

Safer roads have an impact on car insurance costs, as accidents and therefore claims are less likely, and they can also affect breakdown cover, because poor driving conditions contribute to vehicle damage.
