Road safety map to highlight blackspots
Road users are being asked for their assistance in building an online map of UK accident blackspots.
The UK Road Accident Map, being developed by Osbornes Solicitors, will alert drivers to dangerous stretches of road in the hope of improving road safety.
Motorists are being encouraged to log details of accidents on the map, which is free to use. The interactive map also includes information taken from the Government's 2011 Road Safety Accident dataset. Roads users can go online and search for severity of accident, type of car and driving conditions.
The findings will allow drivers to determine which roads to avoid when out and about. It is hoped the map will strengthen the case for better road safety in the affected areas.
More information on the safety measure can be found on the UK Road Accident Map website.
