We looked at the latest DVLA and UK Gov statistics to find the most dangerous situations on UK roads. From age and gender to left vs right turns, we’ve statistical found the most common situations for road accidents. For instance- statistically, in the UK, you are most likely to have an accident as a 20-29 female, driving a car to work, when making a right turn on an urban road at a T junction.
A couple of other interesting findings are:
Roundabouts account for 30% of UK accidents.
Approximately 8% of all car accidents occur when parked.
Urban roads account for 74% of the UK’s accidents despite being only 36% of the UK’s total road length.
