Measuring & Mapping The Safety of Britain’s Motorways & A Roads: British Eurorap 2009 Results
Road crashes cost Britain a staggering 1.5% of GDP. Car occupants account for some 70% of road deaths. Nearly two-thirds are killed outside urban areas with deaths concentrated on Britain’s forgotten A road network.
This year’s report provides the most comprehensive route by route analysis yet of the safety of Britain’s roads, with over 2,700 individual sections covering the entire motorway and A road network outside urban centres.
This 45,000km network is just one-tenth of Britain’s road length but accounts for over half of all deaths.
