Rural roads are the biggest blackspots

New analysis from the road safety charity Brake has found that, on average, a cyclist or motorcyclist is killed every hour on UK roads, according to the website Motor1.

The study also found that, during 2017, two thirds of bike-related deaths occurred on rural roads, making them the most dangerous in the country.

Joshua Harris, director of campaigns at Brake commented: ‘Rural roads, with their high speeds, blind bends and few cycle routes, pose particular danger to those on two wheels, with the risk of a fatal rural road bike crash now at its highest since 2010’.

Concerns regarding rural road safety from horse riders have also been directly raised to the RSN.
