    Leeds is ‘safest big city for drivers’

    By David Brown on November 21, 2013

    Leeds is still the safest of England’s big cities for motorists, new figures suggest.

    According to Department for Transport statistics less people were killed or seriously injured in road accidents in Leeds last year than in any of the country’s other ‘core cities’ outside London.

    The West Yorkshire city has also had a consistently lower casualty rate than Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield or Newcastle since 2005.

    But motorists who are hurt after getting caught up in a car crash in Leeds or any other location can get more information about potential personal injury claims from Accident Advice Helpline.

    The figures, highlighted to mark the current national Road Safety Week, show 80 people were killed or seriously injured on Leeds roads in 2012 for every one billion vehicle miles travelled, the rate having been 94 per billion vehicle miles in 2008.

    ‘No room for complacency’

    Councillor Richard Lewis, Leeds City Council’s executive member for the economy and development, said: “We are very pleased that the statistics show Leeds continues to have the lowest number of road casualties as it is a reflection of the hard work being done by all agencies in Leeds to raise road and driving awareness and our efforts to make our roads as safe as possible.”

    But Councillor Lewis said the figures are no cause for complacency, adding: “Even one serious injury is too many so this vital work must continue in order for the figures to drop further.”

    Road Safety Week aims to raise awareness of the importance of road safety education and the work being done by local authorities and other partner agencies to reduce accident rates.
