A HIGHWAYS authority has published crash sites across the county ‘ranked by number and severity’.

Countywide analysis conducted within the last five years by Transport for Buckinghamshire (TfB) has revealed the top ‘collision clusters’ – areas where five or more incidents of varying severity have occurred within a 50-metre radius.

There are currently more than 160 sites meeting this criterion across Buckinghamshire.

The list is prioritised “according to the number and severity of the collisions” during that time, with “Serious” and “Fatal” injuries to those aboard given a higher weighting than “Slight”.

Although TfB conduct site visits with police after every fatal collision, it does not automatically lead to corrective measures.

However, sites towards the top of the list are investigated to establish if such measures can lower the rate of incidents.

For the current year 2019/20, the top 20 cluster sites (all collisions) are:
