Figures come as government is under fire for "stagnation" in progress on road safety.

Accidents involving tailgating have almost halved over the past five years, according to new analysis of official figures. Research by driving experience firm TrackDays.co.uk looked at figures from the Department for Transport (DfT), revealing a 48-percent reduction in incidents that involved tailgating between 2015 and 2019.

The data showed more than 7,000 road traffic accidents in 2015 listed following too closely as a “contributory factor”. However, in 2019 – the last full year for which figures are available – that figure fell to 3,582.

Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake R-Line 2020 UK review

  Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake R-Line 2020 UK review Expensive after options and lacklustre dynamically, but attractive, comfortable and spacious. R-Line possibly isn’t the wisest trim levelVisibility is also excellent for such a large car. The A-pillars are deliberately slim and the glass-house that wraps around the back of the body is generous, so the Shooting Brake is an easy car to manoeuvre. Paired with the panoramic roof standard on R-Line cars, the resulting spacious but somehow close ambience is similar to that of the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo. Long journeys are pleasant.

At the same time, the research also revealed a long-term decline in the number of accidents involving vehicles travelling too fast for the conditions. In 2015, 7,361 incidents listed this as a contributory factor, but that fell to 4,666 in 2019. That represents a decrease of more than a third (36 percent) over the five-year period.

Dan Jones, operations manager at TrackDays.co.uk, said the figures were welcome news for road safety, before speculating that modern technology may be helping to keep drivers safe.

“It’s very welcome to see such a dramatic drop in the number of reported accidents when following too close was a contributory factor,” he said. “It could be due to a number of factors. Perhaps most importantly, [it could be due to the prevalence of] advanced safety features on modern cars, such as adaptive cruise control that helps keep a safe distance from the car in front. But it would also be nice to think that drivers are now calmer and more considerate to their fellow road users.

First drive: 2021 Volkswagen ID 4 prototype

  First drive: 2021 Volkswagen ID 4 prototype VW’s first electric SUV boasts a familiar depth of engineering, quality and versatility. Initial signs suggest its mainstream ambitions are well warrantedThe second model from VW’s electric-only ID sub-brand sits in the world’s fastest-growing segment and will be built in five factories on three continents, starting at its Zwickau plant in Germany, from which right-hand-drive UK versions will begin rolling later this year. “The ID 4 will have a big impact in each of our three most important markets – Europe, China and North America,” said Brandstätter. “We see the potential for significant volumes.

Remember that because of one-way streets, no right turns, etc., the forward and reverse routes may be different. Given that a significant percentage of London ’s cab journeys take place at night when women (and men) are trying to get home after the Tube has closed this is an unacceptable risk.

Remember , however, that in London you are never far away from the past; the old-fashioned red telephone boxes are becoming popular again and many London pubs – where a visitor might ask for a 3. They’re building a huge … in the centre of town. It’s going to house around a hundred families.

“Brits do appear to be becoming safer motorists in certain areas of driving, which has to be good news for all road users.”

These figures are coming under the spotlight at a time when the government’s road safety record is under immense scrutiny. Earlier this year, figures from the DfT showed the annual number of deaths on UK roads has not changed significantly for around a decade. On average, around five people are killed on British roads every day.

This lack of visible progress has drawn criticism from road safety campaigners, with the charity Brake lamenting a “continued stagnation in the country's road safety record”. In September, the organisation said road casualties “could have been prevented if the government had the courage to make the big decisions”.

For its part, the government has reviewed the Highway Code in a bid to make the roads safer for pedestrians, cyclists and other vulnerable road users, while a review of roads policing is also underway. The DfT says the “wide-ranging” policing review will explore how technology can assist in enforcing road traffic law, and how enforcement influences road user behaviour.
