So here we go again.
The most dangerous roads in the UK are not highways but junctions. AS WE HAVE TOLD PEOPLE FOR THE PAST FIVE YEARS (OR MORE).
And what doesn't appear from the news coverage is that the danger point for motoring accidents is at a junction LESS THAN A MILE FROM YOUR HOME.
Here's part of the story:
It examined accident data relating to roads across Britain. Among the Road Safety Foundation conclusions were:
A third of all fatal and serious crashes happen at junctions
Single roads carry six times the risk of motorways and twice that of dual carriageways
One-in-four fatal or serious crashes on A-roads or motorways involves a motorcyclist
There was a 5% reduction in the number of fatal crashes on such roads in the past three years
