A new study has placed Milton Keynes in the top 10 cities in the UK with the least risk of road accidents.
Taxi insurance experts at Zego analysed ONS data to discover the number of road accidents in each UK city in 2021, both fatal and non-fatal.
The number of accidents was calculated per 10,000 people to determine the ranking.
Taking the title of the city with the least risk of road accidents is Aberdeen. The city had the least accidents reported in one year, 59 to be precise, equating to just 2.79 for every 10,000th person.
Milton Keynes made the list at 10th place, with the city seeing 328 accidents, making that 11.38 for every 10,000th person.
MK fell behind Newport in ninth place. For every 10,000 people, Newport has 11.09 accidents, after having 177 in total.
In first place was Aberdeen. The city had the least accidents reported in one year, 59 to be precise, equating to just 2.79 for every 10,000th person.
On the opposite end of the scale, Doncaster has the most risk of accidents, with 36.23 collisions per 10,000 people.
A spokesperson from Zego has commented on the findings: “Although the factors that contribute to the safety of driving in these cities isn’t clear, it’s particularly interesting that four cities in Scotland make the list as well as three cities in Wales, suggesting that these countries are the least dangerous in the UK when it comes to road safety.”
“However, while the risk of accidents in these cities is low, there’s still a small chance of a collision. To keep yourself safe, it’s important to stay alert while driving so that you can identify any potential hazards to protect both you and other road users as well as watching out for any warning lights on your dashboard in order to remain in control of your vehicle.”
