Somerset accident blackspot is the most dangerous in the South West

Mon, 06/05/2017 - 15:13 -- Slee Blackwell

A North Somerset road has named as the most dangerous road in the South West for motorcyclists.

New research released by Swinton, a UK leading high street insurance broker, has revealed that the A370 in North Somerset is the most dangerous road for bikers in the South West.

The road links Bristol and Weston-Super-Mare and is used by both commuters and holidaymakers.

The data is available for each region of the UK and contains statistics about accident blackspots throughout the country, including the roads where motorcyclists most likely to be involved in an accident.

The road accident information includes the average age of the riders involved, the most common day for an accident to occur and the size of the bikes involved.

Figures show that drivers aged 25 and under are most likely to be involved in an accident, accounting for 38% of the total. Motorcyclists between the ages of 25 and 40 make up a further 28% of all motorbike accidents. Additionally men are more likely to be involved in an accident, making up a whopping 91% of all crashes in the South West.

The data goes on to show that most road accidents in the South West involving motorcycles occur on a Wednesday during fine weather and feature bikes with an engine size of 500cc or greater.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a road traffic accident which wasn’t your fault and would like help making a compensation claim then please give our local injury claim specialists a call on 01823 354545 for a free initial assessment of your case and details of our No Win - No Fee funding scheme.
