Going abroad this year?

How safe is your holiday destination?

If you thought that being a pedestrian or driving in this country was bad enough check out what it’s like in other countries.

In fact the problem got bad enough that it prompted the Foreign Office to start a campaign

The UK Foreign Office website states that,

“The campaign has been developed in response to Foreign Office staff based overseas reporting a high number of road traffic incidents affecting British tourists and expats in popular destinations, such as Thailand, Australia and Spain”

With that in mind we created the widget below to help you compare your holiday destination to the UK. That way we hope to give you better insight into what the roads maybe like where ever you’re going.

Safety Tips

A little research, even just 15 minutes of googling could make a difference. There are some good road safety advice sites out there.
