    Regional car death figures revealed

    By David Brown on July 31, 2014

    Nottinghamshire has been named as the local authority which managed the largest reduction in the number of people who died or were seriously injured in a road accident.

    Figures released by the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) show that 98 fewer people were killed or injured in accidents on the county’s roads last year than in 2012.

    Tower Hamlets in London came second, with 81 fewer deaths or serious injuries, followed by Chester/Chester West with a reduction of 78.

    Lancashire worst performing council

    At the other end of the scale was Lancashire, with an increase of 72 over the period, while there were 70 more deaths or serious injuries in Kent and 43 more in Cumbria.

    The figures, which were compiled by the Department of Transport, show that Suffolk, Hackney, Redbridge, Gloucestershire, Greenwich, Islington and Staffordshire complete the list of the UK’s best performing local authorities.

    Norfolk joins Kent, Cumbria and Lancashire on the list of the 10 worst performing councils, along with East Sussex, Hampshire, Worcester, Wirral, Rotherham and Surrey.

    Road safety ‘must be priority’

    Simon Best, chief executive of the IAM, said the wide regional variations suggest that some local authorities are much better than others at increasing the safety on their roads by putting the appropriate measures in place.

    He added that, with the economy growing, road safety must be made a priority across the country, and called for “clear strategies” that will cut the number of deaths or serious injuries on the road.

    The IAM is a road safety charity which supports campaigns to increase driving and riding standards. It also carries out lobbying work on a national and local government level to ensure that road safety remains a priority.
