Driving is, for most people, the most dangerous thing done on a daily basis. In 2016, 1792 people were killed on British roads (an increase of 4% compared to 2015) and 24,101 people were seriously injured which has increased from 22,144 in 2015.
From 1997, when 3599 people were killed on our roads, the number steadily fell until 2013 when fatalities were down to 1713. The lowest ever recorded. In the last 5 years the numbers have been fluctuating culminating with the current figure which is the highest since 2011.
We must now move forward and work harder to see the figures continue to fall. Medical care has improved and people are now surviving with serious injuries who may well, 10 years ago, have died. Cars are now safer than ever before and road engineering has helped to improve the roads we drive on, so what is left for us to improve upon? Well, 95% of crashes are caused by driver/.rider error so more education must be the way forward.
There are several educational courses available to drivers, such as Speed Awareness, Drink Driving and What’s Driving Us? – known as WDU. (WDU covers several offences such as failing to stop at red traffic lights and crossing solid white lines). The problem with these courses is that they are only offered to drivers who have already been caught offending.
There are plenty of drivers on British roads taking risks who haven’t been caught and are not able to benefit from these educational courses. Most of the time drivers ‘get away with it’ and getting away with it causes drivers to develop habits.
