Kevin Clinton, RoSPA's head of road safety, said: "That road accident deaths have fallen below 2,000 for the first time since records began in the 1920s is a significant achievement, and particularly considering that much of the reduction has happened in very recent history."

Mr Clinton also explained that the improvement proves the value of having a comprehensive road safety strategy. has also done its part to boost safety on the roads by designing a new pothole safety sign.

This sign is the first of its kind in the UK and the website is urging the Department of Transport to install it on roads across the country.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800612828-ADNFCR
