Motor insurance: Safety campaigns 'lead to drop in injuries'

Tuesday, 11 March 2008

The city council in York has suggested that road safety schemes could be the cause of a drop in the number of injuries seen on the city's highway network.

Figures released stated that the amount of individuals injured seriously or killed in York dipped from 2002's level of 120 to 93 in 2007, reports the Yorkshire Post.

Councillor Ann Reid, executive member for city strategy at York council, claimed that the city is closer to its targets in terms of these issues.

"One person killed or seriously injured on our roads is one too many but I am delighted that we are back on target at reducing these devastating accidents," she told the publication.

Ms Reid added that the organisation will stage a meeting to look at plans for even more road safety initiatives that could occur in the next financial year.

This week, councillors in Whitchurch Hampshire refused to sanction the building of a roundabout after suggesting it would not improve traffic flow, the Basingstoke Gazette reported.

Drivers involved in accidents may find that their car insurance premiums are negatively impacted upon.
