    Most dangerous roads in Leicester

    Whenever you take to the road, you are always at risk of a road traffic accident. No matter how cautiously you drive, there is always a chance that you will be sharing the road with careless drivers.

    Cities are typically bustling, and this is definitely the case for roads in Leicester. A higher volume of traffic, and busy city life, also leads to a higher number of road traffic accidents, and Leicester is no exception to this finding.

    According to Leicester City Council, roads are currently undergoing development to improve problem areas. In 2013, within the city, the worst five roads and junctions in the city have been recognised as:

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

    If you are involved in a road traffic accident, in Leicester or in any other area of the UK, it is essential that you keep as calm as possible and collate the following information.

    You will need to obtain details of:

    Open Claim Calculator

    • The place of the accident
    • Any third-party drivers involved in the accident, including contact information and registration numbers
    • Witness contact information where possible
    • Damage to the vehicles involved – it is often easier to take photographs of any damage caused

    Remember to speak with any third-party drivers and try not to place blame. If the road traffic accident has caused an obstruction, you will need to call the police, who will manage the incident for you. Likewise, if any individual is injured, contact the emergency ambulance service.
