Road Safety

The United Kingdom might now have the safest roads in the European Union, but the number of people dying or being injured on our roads is still too high.

In 2012/13 there were 10 people killed and 130 people seriously injured on roads across Cleveland.

Road traffic collisions are preventable, as many of them are caused by people driving:

  • too fast or overtaking dangerously
  • whilst using a mobile
  • under the influence of alcohol/drugs
  • whilst tired
  • without using a seatbeltCoulby winter check poster 2014
