Murdo Fraser (Conservative) | Question S3W-11165

The following tables provide the statistics requested. Each sub-table lists only 20 roads, therefore, in some cases, other roads may have the same numbers of injury road accidents, or fatalities, as the last road shown in a particular sub-table. For example, the A719 was not the only road which had three fatalities in 2002.

In the case of roads, such as the A1, which cross the border, the figures relate only to accidents which occurred in Scotland. As the roads listed vary in length, those roads with higher number of accidents may not necessarily reflect those with the highest intensity of accidents (number per mile).
