The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) has welcomed the publication of the latest road casualty figures from the Department for Transport, hailing them as an "all-time low" in road deaths.According to figures from the government, road deaths in 2007 fell seven per cent to 2,956, with serious injuries dropping three per cent to 7,774.Slight injuries also fell, by four per cent, to 217,060.Neil Greig, trust director of the IAM, said: "This new low for road traffic deaths should be acknowledged and, while there is no room for complacency, it's worth taking a moment to reflect on the success to date."He added the drop below 3,000 deaths is a positive milestone, but noted each of these was a tragedy, ruining lives of the families involved.Motorists can take an advanced driving test with the IAM which can reduce their car insurance premiums in some cases.
