Whenever we take to the road, there is always a chance of experiencing a road traffic accident. With this in mind, accident blackspots around the UK only increase the risk of drivers suffering accidents on the road.
With an awareness of where these dangerous accident blackspots hide, drive with caution and respect for the road and it is possible to minimise the risk of road traffic accidents.
Where are Britains most dangerous accident blackspots?
According to a report published by The Road Safety Foundation, featured in The Telegraph in September 2015, the ten most dangerous accident blackspots in Britain have been identified as:
- A18: From Laceby to Ludborough, Lincolnshire
- A36: From A3090 to Totton, Hampshire
- A588: From A585 Blackpool to Lancaster

The report was compiled not only to identify the areas to raise awareness of the most dangerous accident blackspots, but also to facilitate improvements to our roads in an attempt to minimise the risk of road-related accidents.
