Ministers considering road star safety ratings




Roads across Britain could be given official star ratings for safety, new new plans put forward by the Government.Ministers and The Highway Agency plus Local councils have grouped together to discuss the merit of a five star safety rating system.

A similar programme named EuroRAP is already in place. This system grades the safety of major transport links throughout Europe. It is believed the new suggested system will be based on this.

The potential star ratings will help drivers avoid particular routes and allow them to plan their journey accordingly.

Although road markings would help motorists plan their journeys, it shouldn’t be ignored that car safety is an important factor when driving. Car tyres should be checked regularly and before long journeys.
