    Most dangerous roads in Bradford

    Every time you take a vehicle onto the road, you are at risk of experiencing a road traffic accident. Regardless of your skill as a driver, or how cautious you may be, there is always the danger of other road users not matching your level of care.

    In busy cities, a higher volume of traffic will almost definitely lead to an increase of accidents on the roads, and the city of Bradford is no exception to this.

    Bradford City Council has made progress in the safety of its roads over the last 10 years, with the number of casualties due to road traffic accidents at its lowest since 2004.

    According to data collated by The Bradford Lengths of Road survey, the following five roads in Bradford have been identified as the most problematic for drivers experiencing road traffic accidents:

    1. Hawksworth Road, Baildon
    2. Skipton Road/North Street, Keighley
    3. Halifax Road, Flappit Springs
    4. Haworth Road, Heaton
    5. Lumb Lane, Bradford

    The report indicates that these stretches of road, ‘have an accident rate more than three times the national average’.

    What to do if you are involved in a road traffic accident

    If you are involved in a road traffic accident, whether in Bradford or any other part of the UK, it is vital that you keep calm, and gather the following information:

    You will need the following details:

    • Place of the accident
    • Contact information and registration numbers of any third party drivers involved in the accident
    • Contact information from any witnesses, and where possible, a written statement of events
    • Proof and details of any damage obtained by the vehicles involved – taking photographs is often the best way of obtaining this information

    If you speak to any third party drivers, it is best to avoid placing any blame on any particular individual.

    If the road traffic accident has caused a blockage or obstruction in the road, then you will need to contact the police. If any individuals are injured as part of the accident, then you will need to contact the ambulance service.
