10 Common Road Safety Problems

Modal Group Ltd road safety auditors carry out many road safety audits (RSA) across the UK on various schemes ranging from new commercial developments through to checking the safety of railway level crossings. In our travels across the country, we have noticed that it is often the same issues that crop up time and time again. Therefore, I thought it appropriate to highlight some of these common road safety ailments in order to create greater awareness of these reoccurring safety issues.

Our RSAs have identified 10 Common Road Safety Problems:
