What is the difference between a FATAL accident and any other?

Nothing, except that in a fatal accident, through a combination of circumstances, somebody tragically loses their life.

Using the number of deaths as a yardstick for road safety is shortsighted.

Many lives are saved these days by better in car safety features, better emergency provision such as motorcycle and vehicle paramedics and the Air Ambulance Service, and not by better safety provision on the highway or better driving standards, and more work needs to be done in these areas.

Roads are not inherently dangerous. Drive to the conditions and be able to stop in the space you see. Sadly this was not being practiced last week on the M6 during the bad weather. Most accidents are caused by the nut behind the wheel.
