road accident statistics

December 28, 2013

This year, the “Seven Dangerous Days of the New Year” is from 27th December 2013 to Thursday 2nd January 2014. From past experience with this, I have found the statistics not to be accurate. Partly due to they usually only count deaths on scene, but also because some accidents go unreported. But, it does give some indication of how bad it is on the roads.
