RAC comments on launch of the Road Crash Index

Commenting on the launch by the Road Safety Foundation and Ageas of the Road Crash IndexRAC road safety spokesman Pete Williams said:

“This is a powerful road crash index which will help focus attention and investment where it can do most to improve road safety and save lives. We applaud the Road Safety Foundation and Ageas for their innovative and systematic approach to mapping the UK’s most dangerous roads which will help Highways England and local authorities tackle the worst black spots and dangerous stretches of road.

“After years of declining road fatality and casualty rates, we have seen these plateau over the last decade and 2016 saw the highest number of people killed on UK roads since 2011. It is vital that we are never complacent about road casualties and continue to tackle the causes of life-changing accidents for the benefit of all society.”
