All of us need to be conversant with these guidelines and regulations. Sadly, every day average statistics of death and damage are high. With records from 80 years ago, almost 5000 were killed on the roads that year. Today, some 1700 are killed, averaging 5 per day! And as for injuries, over 170 000. That’s over 460 per day. This averages to One every THREE minutes. The cost, over £100 per second! There was a 4% rise of deaths in 2016. Sad!
