The Most Dangerous Roads in Britain

The Most Dangerous Roads in Britain have been revealed by the Road Safety Foundation who commissioned the report.

The Most Dangerous Roads in Britain is the A285

The report which is named ‘How Safe Are You On Britain’s Roads?’ named a stretch of road, the A285 between Chichester and Petworth in West Sussex the most dangerous of roads, nationwide. It has seen serious and fatal crashes rise by 16% from 2007 to 2012.

The report claimed a ‘far-reaching intervention’ is needed on the A285 in West Sussex to help tackle the severity of the problems on that piece of road and that the current safety measures are inadequate.

The report also said that the risk of death and serious injury is two thirds higher on major roads in the East Midlands than in the West Midlands.
