Road users in Scotland are far more likely to be seriously hurt in collisions than anywhere else in the UK – despite the likelihood of an accident occurring ranking significantly lower.

Over a quarter of all incidents on the nation’s roads were deemed to have resulted in a serious injury compared to just 14% of crashes in London, according to new research.

A report by law firm Slater and Gordon found Glasgow as Scotland’s top accident blackspot with an estimated 2,324 casualties ahead of Edinburgh in second on 1,932 across a three-year period.

Over 27% of those recorded in Scotland were rated as “serious”, a figure that jumped to 31% when accounting for fatal crashes.
