    Top 5 most dangerous roads in Liverpool

    Top 5 most dangerous roads in Liverpool

    We can all recall an instance when traffic has slowed to a standstill, only to see that an accident has occurred on the other side of the road. Road traffic accidents are an unfortunate part of life and being aware of accident-ridden thoroughfares can only contribute towards lessening year-end figures. The top 5 most dangerous roads in Liverpool are those which you should try and avoid wherever possible.

    Top 5 Most dangerous roads in Liverpool

    1. A540 – Chester High Road

    A stretch of tarmac so perilous it has been unfortunately credited with ‘Red Route’ status by Cheshire Police. With a history of numerous and regular collisions on the road and serious injuries due to persistent ignorance in regards to the speed limit, motorists should be taking extra care here.

    2. A59

    Beginning in Wallasey, the A59 meanders through Liverpool city centre and out onto the motorway towards Lancashire and Yorkshire. Road accident claims are unfortunately an all too common occurrence. The European Road Assessment Programme deem it ‘medium’ or ‘higher’ on their severity scale.

    3 & 4. Southport Road, Bootle and Lower Breck Road, Anfield

    These two roads caused commuting chaos earlier this year with separate serious road accidents on the same morning. While a van colliding into a wall on Southport Road can perhaps be dismissed as an isolated incident, accidents involving motorcycles on Lower Brick Road are all too common. It’s a fast moving road with no pedestrian crossings to slow or halt traffic, making it especially hazardous for those on foot.

    5. Edge Lane

    Though road traffic accidents along this stretch are less common than other entries on this list, one particular incident in 2012 sees Edge Lane appear on this unfortunate list. Two major crashes within half an hour of each other saw ten people landed in hospital with injuries.
