Every year over 200,000 people are injured on roads in the UK.
Every year over 1,500 people are killed on our roads in the UK. Alarming statistics.
And yet we all drive under the misconception that accidents only ever happen to someone else.
Perversely, people are terrified of getting onto a plane, despite the fact that flying is statistically one of the safest ways of traveling.
Then there is the issue of motorway congestion.
Few of us escape the horrendous high cost of delays on our motorway network.
In the UK alone, traffic congestion on motorways is costing a staggering £20 billion pounds every year. Even if you don’t own a car you suffer the consequences of the impact this has on our economy. There are no winners – only losers.
This web site is dedicated to improving safety and minimising disruption on motorways in the UK. It will give you details of the latest innovations and developments in motorway safety, as well as link you with all the organisations working to reduce congestion and improve our motorway network.
