Road deaths uk 2015
“There were more people here than I realised.” The earnest last words 104-year-old David Goodall said at the press conference held in his honour, as he was wheeled out through the crowd, were an accurate summation of the scientist who found incidental fame in his battle to die. Goodall died today after flying from Perth, Australia, earlier this week to end his life with the lethal drug Nembutal at the Eternal Spirit house in Switzerland. Switzerland has allowed assisted suicide since 1942, and is the only country that offers it to foreign nationals. According to the Swiss statistics office there were 965 assisted suicide deaths in 2015, compared to just 43 in 1998.

Similar to death and taxes, road accidents are an unfortunate part of life, especially on today’s highly-congested roads. Our buddies at Your Legal Friend came up with a unique infographic to explain the most common road accidents in the UK, which are surprisingly similar to the crash rates in the United States. Your Legal Friend recently conducted a study on the dynamics and circumstances surrounding road crashes. The firm leveraged their experience in personal injury law to analyze more than 25,000 incident reports. Their findings are something we should all pay attention to, regardless of where we live. For example, from the Your Legal Friend study, we see a trend between the most common types of road accidents and the types of people most likely to be involved in a crash. We even see how some parts of the year are worse than others. Did you know road accidents are most likely to occur on a Friday in July? Here are the highlights of the study Your Legal Friend conducted. It … [Read more...] about Most Common Road Accidents & What to Do After a Crash
On July 1st the speed limit on secondary roads across France will be cut from 90km/h to 80km/h in the hope of reducing the number of deaths on these roads. A new report which aims to add weight to the move, which has angered motorist groups, has revealed where in France these two-lane secondary roads (those without a central reservation) have the highest mortality rates. The report, released on Tuesday by France's observatory of road safety ONISR, looked at road deaths between 2012 and 2016 on the country's two-lane roads outside of urban areas, in other words in the countryside. Out of 9,579 deaths on the roads 762 were on routes nationales, so the main roads after motorways, 8,221 were on route departementales, so secondary roads, and 596 were on smaller countryside roads. To put road deaths on French countryside roads and highways in France in a more European context some 2,175 people were killed in 2015 on roads outside urban areas in France … [Read more...] about Where in France are the countryside roads the most dangerous?
