A recent report by road safety charity, Institute of Advanced Motorists has revealed that the number of serious accidents on 20mph roads has increased by over a quarter last year.

The news was reported by Yahoo Cars:

“Slight accidents on 20mph roads increased by 17 per cent. However, in the same year, there was a decrease in the number of serious and slight accidents on 30mph roads and 40 mph roads.

Serious accidents went down nine per cent on 30mph roads and seven per cent on 40 mph roads. There was a five per cent reduction in slight accidents on 30 mph roads and a three per cent decrease on 40 mph roads.

Casualties in 20mph zones also saw a rise, while serious casualties increased by 29 per cent and slight casualties went up by 19 per cent.”

This news shows that while overall casualties on our roads are decreasing, drivers still need to be vigilant on local roads.
