    One person is injured almost daily on South Tyneside roads

    By David Brown on October 30, 2014

    A new report issued by the Department of Transport has indicated that 300 people were injured in accidents on roads in South Tyneside during 2013. This means there was one casualty almost every day throughout the year on average. There was some good news however as this figure represented a drop of 32% compared to figures gleaned from 2012.

    The figures for 2013 revealed that no one died as a consequence of any of the accidents that took place that year. However 23 people of the total of 300 suffered one or more injuries that were serious in nature.

    A councillor for South Tyneside Council, Tracey Dixon, pointed out the schemes the council has created and put into place to try and reduce the number of accidents that occur on South Tyneside roads. She was “pleased” at the reduced number of accidents last year, but vowed to continue the hard work to bring down the figure even further. She stated that one accident would still be too many, and the council is still working hard to reduce the number in future years as well. This will be done through a variety of measures.

    How dangerous can the roads be for road users?

    Everyone who uses the roads – whether they drive or ride on them, or cross them to get from one side to the other – is potentially at risk of having an accident. We can all take steps to ensure we are safer on the roads, as well as ensuring we do not put the safety of anyone else at risk. Any injury suffered on the roads – anywhere in the country – is upsetting. It can take some time to recover from such an incident both in a physical and mental sense.
