Norfolk road deaths at record low over 2008

Norfolk drivers may be pleased to hear that the county has reduced fatal car accidents by a third, to a record low, as shown by recent figures. Those figures also show a reduction in the level of non-fatal personal injury suffered in Norfolk road traffic accidents.

The chairman of the Norfolk Road Casualty Reduction Group welcomed these figures, saying "The figures for fatalities have been stubbornly stable for some time, so the 2008 statistics are cause for optimism. These figures add up to the most significant reduction in recent years - by some margin."

However, he warned motorcyclists of the risks of road traffic accidents, saying, "In the last 18 months, we've seen a fall from 140 to 110 serious or fatal accidents involving motorcyclists - it's still far too many, but we are making progress through training."

Norfolk Council's car accident work has been recognised with beacon status and with funding to develop a training model for councils up and down the UK to help them avoid their constituents suffering personal injury and making compensation claims.
