Resumen An overview of the road transport environment in Great Britain is presented. Basic road transport statistics are given on the road network, the weight distribution of goods vehicles on the roads and distances travelled; estimates are made for the number of heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) carrying hazardous materials. Accident information includes frequency of accidents involving HGVs generally and HGVs carrying hazardous materials, circumstances surrounding certain types of accidents and the probability of certain outcomes of accidents. Limited information is also given for comparative purposes on the road transport environment in other countries.
