Based in Berkshire, the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is home to Ascot Racecourse, Windsor Castle, Eton, and attractions including Legoland.
With major arteries like the M4 running through it, the borough is no stranger to accidents on its roads, and the local council says that, while the figures for those who are killed or seriously injured on its roads are 28% lower than for the UK overall, they are the third highest for the county’s six local authorities.
Equally, while there has been a downward trend in terms of numbers of road accidents in recent years, in 2012 there were nearly 60 serious and more than 450 slight casualties on local roads, involving a disproportionate number of 16 to 24-year-olds, for whom the figure is above the national average.
Statistics also show that you are more likely to have a Windsor and Maidenhead accident on a motorcycle or push bike than you are elsewhere in the county, or in the UK as a whole.
