The UK’s road traffic accident stats
In the UK, we hold the record as having one of the top road safety records in Europe. There have, however, been increases to traffic over the last few years. This being said, the number of people killed on our roads has fallen drastically since the 80’s.
However, records show that there are at least five fatalities on UK roads every day. According to RoSPA, it is estimated that the number of road traffic accident casualties which take place in Great Britain is around 880,000 a year. This doesn’t just include those who experience an accident. It includes fatalities also.
Common causes of accidents
There are many reasons as to why someone may be involved in a road traffic accident. There are thousands of fatalities each year due to things such as careless driving, bad weather conditions, speeding, drink driving and driving while using a hand held device. It is estimated that 400 people are injured or killed in accidents involving young drivers.
It’s devastating that regardless of the high amount of accidents and deaths that take place, people still continue to drive in an unsafe manner which can ultimately cause death to both themselves and others.
