The number of people killed and seriously injured on Lancashire’s roads has reduced again according to latest figures.
In 2012, 704 people were killed or seriously injured on the county’s roads.
This compares to 795 in 2011 – 91 less or an 11.4 per cent reduction.
Chief Insp Debbie Howard from Lancashire Constabulary, who is in charge of road policing, said: “Whilst these figures suggest that our roads are now even safer, we are not complacent and we are committed to reducing this figure even further.
“Most collisions in the county are linked to driver errors and behaviour and what we term the ‘Fatal 4’ which is speeding, not wearing a seatbelt, using a mobile phone whilst driving or driving under the influence of alcohol.
“We have activity throughout the year that is dedicated to tackling these issues and we will continue to work with other agencies to educate road users about staying safe on the roads and enforce legislation.”
