SAFETY experts chose the winner of a contest to highlight the Red Routes initiative on two danger roads, one in Ellesmere Port and Neston borough.
Margaret Armstrong, of Eastham, won a Nintendo DS Lite Red with Brain Training and Sight Training software.
Cheshire County Council’s Road Safety Unit has identified eight routes – high risk collision routes – where drivers are more likely to have a crash and be fatally or seriously injured.
The route with the highest risk is the A530 Middlewich Road between Middlewich and Nantwich, with 129 collisions and 186 casualties including two deaths over a three-year period.
Cheshire’s highways and transportation executive member, Cllr Eveleigh Moore-Dutton, said: “Our Red Routes campaign highlights where and how drivers are more at risk on particular routes in Cheshire and I know many are surprised by the driver profile of those involved in crashes.
“On the A540 they are predominantly sober and driving within the speed limit though, at times, at an inappropriate speed and too close to the vehicle in front.
“Drivers aged between 20 and 40 tend to cause rear end collisions, and drivers aged 60 plus tend to cause collisions when turning right on to and off the A540.”
