UK roads named second safest in Europe

UK roads are second safest in Europe

How safe do you feel on British roads?

A recent report by the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) shows the UK had the second fewest road deaths per million inhabitants than any other country in the European Union (EU).

However, statistics from CARE (EU Road Accidents Database) shows that 70 people still die every day in traffic-related incidents on EU roads.

Safest in Europe

Analysis of the number road fatalities in Europe has ranked the UK second in terms of safety, with only 28 deaths per million inhabitants.

According to the report, only Sweden’s roads are safer, with 25 road deaths per million people.

Denmark (30) and the Netherlands (31) followed closely, while Romania had the highest fatality rate, with 99 deaths per million.

Road traffic deaths have been falling steadily in Europe over the past two decades. In 2017 just 25,300 deaths were recorded, compared with 54,900 fatalities in 2001.

However, the ACEA has flagged that Europe still has a long way to go in improving safety on the roads, with a huge percentage of road incidents linked to distracted driving.

EU Commissioner, Elzbieta Bienkowska, responsible for internal market, industry, entrepreneurship and SMEs, said: “Every year, 25,000 people lose their lives on our roads. The vast majority of these accidents are caused by human error. We can and must act to change this.”

New safety measures

A number of new safety features will be made mandatory in European vehicles as of 2022, in an effort to make driving safer across the continent.

Key safety features will include driver drowsiness and distraction warnings, intelligent speed assistance and safe reversing measures using a camera or sensors.

The UK has confirmed it will also follow new EU regulations on road safety.

Bienkowska said: “With the new advanced safety features that will become mandatory, we can have the same kind of impact as when safety belts were first introduced.

“Many of the new features already exist, in particular in high–end vehicles. Now we raise the safety level across the board and pave the way for connected and automated mobility of the future.”

  3. I am sure this post has touched all the internet users, its really
    really good post on building up new website.

  4. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a fantastic job with this.
    Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Firefox.
    Superb Blog!

  5. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any
    problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot
    of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without
    my permission. Do you know any methods to help prevent
    content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

    as yours and my visitors would really benefit from some
    of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this okay with
    you. Cheers!

  7. Thanks for every other magnificent article. Where else could anyone get that type of information in such a perfect means
    of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I
    am at the search for such info.

  8. Stunning story there. What occurred after? Thanks!

  9. Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the
    blog. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

  10. I think the admin of this site is actually working hard in support of his site, because here every
    information is quality based information.

  11. Hi there, this weekend is nice in favor of me, because this
    time i am reading this impressive informative piece of writing here at my
    house.

  12. That is a really good tip particularly to those new to the blogosphere.
    Brief but very precise info… Thanks for sharing this one.
    A must read article!

  13. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and
    entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I came across this in my search for something relating to this.
