Managing route safety in the UK
For many traffic planners the primary focus is to ensure that the deliveries for the day are planned and allocated to vehicles, routes and drivers. Secondary considerations then start to come into play around safety, environment, and road risk to other road users, in particular vulnerable road users.
We came across this handy little tool yesterday that's a quick easy reference guide for transport planners in the UK. It comes via a well known insurance company that we as a business have no links to, however, we do think that its a great quick reference point for you to use.
Simply follow this link https://dangerousroads.ageas.co.uk/ its part of a collaborative project with the Road Safety Foundation and identifies roads that are a persistent high risk as well as identifying fatal and serious road incidents throughout the UK.
