Over 250,000 people have been killed or seriously injured on Britain’s roads in the past 10 years: that’s more than 70 people every day. Furthermore, £36 billion is lost in road crashes every year representing 2 per cent of GDP: that’s more than the country spends on GP services and primary schooling combined. These statistics are unacceptably high, which is precisely why the Road Crash Index was developed. The Index is part of a collaborative campaign between Ageas UK and the Road Safety Foundation. It aims to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on Britain’s roads to zero.
