Green Thought of the Week

The UK's first fatal car accident was in 1896, 115 years ago on Monday 17th August.   A woman was killed by a vehicle travelling at 4mph.

The coroner told her inquest that he hoped hers would be the last death in this sort of accident.

Since then more than 550,000 people have been killed on Britain's roads and almost 4,000 people are killed on the world's roads every day.
