Big Drop In Deaths On Dorset's Roads

A big road safety campaign's being credited for a massive drop in the number of people killed on Dorset's roads.

11 people died last year, according to new figures - that's a 52% drop on 2009 and the lowest number on record.

The figures for 2010 compared to 2009 also show that:

- The number of children killed or seriously injured on DCC roads reduced by 50%.The last child fatality was in 2006.

Dorset County Council road safety manager, Robert Smith, said:

“Although this is very encouraging news, we cannot be complacent as each crash causes untold misery for those involved.

“There is still a great deal of work to be done to convince a significant number of motorists that they must concentrate more on what is going o around them. A good driver is one who acknowledges they can always improve and then does something about it."

"For those who choose to ignore our advice, it will only be a matter of time before they too are caught. We will continue to crack down on bad and careless driving anywhere in Dorset.”
