MSP Welcomes Road Safety Figures

Figures have revealed the number of people fatally injured on North-East roads is at its lowest level since current records began in 1974.
Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the data which shows last year 14 people were killed compared with figures from more than 40 years ago, which show there were 102 people died within the same time frame.

The figures are provisional statistics for the combined local authority areas of Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray.

The previous lowest figure occurred in 2011, when 22 people died during the year.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“The decrease in the number of fatalities is welcome but we must not become complacent about the safety on our roads.

“The impact on family and friends from the death of a loved one is tragic and has consequences that are long-lasting.

“I would like to commend the emergency services and local authorities for all their hard work on this issue.

“Progress has obviously been made and I fully support the work of all those involved to see what can be learnt from the most recent figures in order to decrease the number of fatal incidents on North-East roads.”
