Safest place in the UK to drive?

Recommended Posts

The largest number of drivers who have been involved in a road accident this year is from the Midlands. Nationally, 17 to 24-year-olds are the most at risk from crashes, according to figures released by car insurance providers Sainsbury's Bank. The figures showed that 4% of motorists in Britain were involved in a road accident between April and September, with the figure rising to 6% for drivers in the Midlands.

As many as 12% of 17-24 year olds said they had been involved in an accident in this six-month period - well above the average for other age groups.

Scotland appears to be the "safest" area - with only 2% of Scottish drivers having accidents in April-September this year.

These are the percentages of motorists in each area involved a car accident over the past six months:

Midlands - 6%

Wales & West - 5%

North East/Yorks/Humber - 4%

Greater London - 4%

North West - 4%

South East/East Anglia - 3%

Scotland - 2%

IIRC Scotland is the (or certainly one of the) least densely populated areas of the mainland so I guess it stands to reason :lol:

It would also suggest that Londoners are wicked drivers given our only average accident invovlement rate despite the london traffic!
