98% of all road traffic collisions are attributed to human error. The next statistic could be you! Its your choice on the road! Road Traffic Collisions (RTC’s) have become more frequent than house fires, and sadly cause more deaths. In 2011, the number of road related casualties on welsh roads was 9406.
It is therefore a major priority for the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service to highlight the dangers that exist for the public travelling on South Wales roads, and raise awareness of the simple measures they can take to ensure they, their passengers and other road users remain safe.
Young drivers in Wales account for a third of all road traffic fatalities and one fifth of newly qualified drivers have had a collision within the first 12 months of passing their test.
