In this article, we take a look at the top 5 accident hotspots in Hampshire.
Elvetham Road, Fleet
After a serious road traffic accident in 2012, residents of Elvetham Road in Fleet called for more action by Hampshire County Council in to reduce the number of collisions in the area. The calls for action were made after a driver lost control of his vehicle, causing his vehicle to crash into a parked car and causing extensive damage to several other cars and properties in the area.
Church Road, Fleet
The second accident black spot on our list is also in Fleet. After a number of road traffic collisions occurred including the death of a young school pupil, calls were made to have the speed limit lowered from 40mph to 30mph. This was enacted by the council as well as removing a number of chicanes in the road.
Fair Oak and Stockbridge
Fair Oak and Stockbridge come in at numbers 3 and 4 on our list for the same tragic reasons. In July 2013, Hampshire was in shock after 2 motorcyclists lost their lives in separate crashes within just days of one another. Both men were 24 years of age.
Rownhams also features on our list for the same reasons as above. In the same month another motorcyclist was tragically killed when riding. In total, 6 motorcyclists lost their lives on Hampshire’s roads in July 2013. This indicates that motorcyclists are particularly at risk of being involved in a road traffic accident in Hampshire. Extra attention and observation should be paid towards motorcyclists who may be perhaps difficult to see when emerging from junctions.
