National Road Victim Month

August is National Road Victim month. It is the month that the first road traffic crash victim was killed – Mary Ward in Ireland on 31st August. Almost 30 years later, in 1896 Bridget Driscoll was the first road death in Britain on 17th August. And more recently, Diana, Princess of Wales life was taken in a car crash in 1997. August is the month to remember all those that have been injured or killed on our roads. As well as remembrance, it is an opportunity to raise awareness of RTA’s and what we can do to improve the safety of our roads.

RoadPeace the national charity, campaigning for tougher laws, and safer roads for Road Crash victims in the UK, reported that in 2018, a staggering 1,782 people were killed on roads across Britain. And shockingly, 25,484 people reported being seriously injured in crashes. Along with tougher laws, in order to make our roads safer, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians need to take more action to be cautious on the road:

  • Pay attention
  • Don’t drink and drive
  • Don’t use your phone whilst driving
  • Don’t tailgate
  • Indicate
  • Stick to the speed limit
  • Use pedestrian crossings

Last year alone we dealt with 7000 road traffic cases. Supporting those who have suffered minor, severe and life changing injuries as a result of a non-fault road traffic accident.

In 2017, it was reported that there were 648 pedestrians hurt or killed on Merseyside road*. 91 of those pedestrians were using a designated crossing, 457 slightly hurt, 176 seriously hurt and 15 killed. Figures also show that Berry Street and Wood Street are the most dangerous roads for pedestrians to cross in Merseyside in terms of number of incidents.

Accident data also reveals that the A57 is the most dangerous road in Merseyside for crashes, with 58 collisions happening in 2017 and 85 people hurt or killed*

Shockingly, there were a total of 2,241 casualty-causing collisions on all roads in Merseyside in 2017.
