A survey carried out by the Road Safety Foundation and EuroRAP has revealed some of the most dangerous roads in the UK.
The study looked at 28,000 miles of motorways and A roads in Britain that did not form part of significant urban regions. The roads in the study make up 11 per cent of the UK’s road network but they bear 56 % of all traffic.
A map was produced following the survey which colour codes the roads in terms of risk factor. The most dangerous are black, red represents a medium risk and green is the safest category.
A seven mile stretch of road on the A537 from Macclesfield to Buxton was acknowledged in the survey as the most dangerous in the country with 44 fatal accidents in four years.
I was a passenger in a car involved in a road traffic accident and suffered serious injuries to my right shoulder, my elbow and scarring to my forehead. I was unable to work for a long time. First Personal Injury*/Jefferies Solicitors Ltd dealt with my case from the outset. I never expected that I would receive £21,191.00 of compensation for my injuries and other losses I had as a result of the accident. I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and would definitely recommend First Personal Injury/Jefferies Solicitors Ltd to anyone who wants to make an accident claim.
