Fall in Road Deaths and Injuries Welcomed

The Department for Transport has recently published a report giving detailed statistics on road traffic personal injury accidents in 2013.

The report reveals that road deaths in 2013 decreased by 2% compared to 2012, to 1,713, which is apparently the lowest figure since national records began in 1926. In addition, the number of people seriously injured fell by 6% to 21,657, compared to 2012.

There has also a fall in the number of pedestrians and cyclists killed, but an unfortunate rise in the number of motorcyclist deaths, which rose 1% to 331 in 2013.  

The fall in numbers has been welcomed by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).  However, the charity has warned that more needs to be done to ensure the number of road deaths and serious injuries are reduced further.  

“The overall reduction in road deaths is welcome news but everyone associated with road safety should renew their efforts to make our roads even safer,” commented Nick Lloyd, RoSPA’s road safety manager.”  

“Let’s remember that every death on the road is a tragedy we should try and avoid,” he added.
