Motorways: Life in the Fast Lane
(ep. 4/4 No Such Thing As an Accident?) – BBC 2
Documentary series following the workers who keep the traffic flowing on one of the busiest stretches of road in Britain, where the countries longest motorway, the M6, meets four other major routes.
Every year in Britain there are an estimated 250,00 road traffic collisions. It is a widely held theory amongst those working on the motorway that there’s in no such thing as an accident – usually something or someone to blame. This episode takes a look at the work of the Highways Agency, motorway police and other agencies who are making Britain motorways safer and also explores the environmental, economic and emotional costs of accidents that occur on Britain’s motorways.
