    Top 5 most dangerous roads in Sheffield

    Top 5 most dangerous roads in Sheffield

    Sheffield and the surrounding area boasts some of the most spectacular and picturesque sights in the whole of the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, its winding roads are also home to a number of road traffic accidents. Here are the top 5 most dangerous roads in Sheffield.

    Top 5 most dangerous roads in Sheffield

    1. A621 – Baslow to Totley

    Number one in the area, and third in the entire country, according to the Road Safety Foundation (RSF) when it comes to dangerous roads. Bends are often misjudged by drivers underestimating the complexity of the road while cycling accidents are also frequent.

    2. A625 – Calver to Sheffield

    Dangerous drivers and careless cyclists cause enough problems on this particular road to see it named the fourth most dangerous road in the UK by the RSF. Leafy trees and foliage line the tarmac so vision is restricted and the chances of a road collision are high.

    3. Snake Pass

    As aesthetically stunning as it is treacherous. This particular part of the A57 leaves Sheffield and traverses the Peak District towards Manchester and has an accident record to make you wince. The lack of a connecting motorway between the two cities mean Snake Pass is often crowded while adverse weather, particularly snow, frequently sees it shut. Driven properly, it’s a remarkable road but the spectre of a car accident on the road looms large.

    4. Stocksbridge Bypass

    Millions of pounds of investment has unfortunately not brought an end to fatal road accidents along this stretch. Due to the speed of the traffic, any sort of road accident along here tends to be serious, with regular motor accident claims being reported.

    5. Hangingwater Road

    Problems with the road itself, rather than motorists, beset this stretch of tarmac that runs alongside Endcliffe Park. Littered with potholes, drivers are forced to exercise extreme caution to avoid causing substantial damage to their vehicle while riders have to take considerable care to avoid motorcycle accidents.

    These are the top 5 most dangerous roads in Sheffield, but there are many others to be aware of.

    If you are involved in a road accident that was not your fault, it’s important to remember that help is at hand. Often, road accident compensation could be due, while the fear of an accident with an uninsured driver is a very real one for most motorists.
