By collecting and analysing car accident statistics from across the UK, a ‘safe driver index score’ was created, ranking regions out of 100 and determining which UK region has the safest drivers.
In 2020 there were 1,840 reported traffic collisions across Lancashire.
Blackburn with Darwen received the lowest safe driver score of all regions in the UK with 16.78/100.
The district has 253 road casualties per million people, the 17th highest of all. Each road accident in the region results in 0.80 casualties on average.
The region may have fewer road casualties and vehicle accidents, but its average number of casualties per accident, 0.82, is the eighth highest of all places analysed.
The area sees an average of 205 road casualties per million and 385 accidents per 10,000 vehicles.
