The most dangerous motorway in the UK
According to statistics gathered from Easier car industry publication, the most dangerous motorway is the M621 in Yorkshire, which was voted the nation’s most dangerous section of motorway in 2008. It became infamous as one of the most dangerous motorways in the country, and it is still the scene of a significant number of road traffic accidents today.
Particular black spots
The black spot of the motorway is the stretch between J2 and J2a toward Leeds. This is because of the sheer amount of traffic and the varying conditions that often plague the stretch of motorway.
How to avoid an accident on the motorway
Before you set off on any long journey, check your tyre pressure and check for any excessive wear on the treads. Top up any fluids such as oil or brake fluid. When driving, ensure that you do not exceed the signposted speed limit and ensure that you give the road your full attention when driving. A split-second lapse in concentration is all it takes for a serious traffic accident to occur.
