Spanish study finds that 10 minutes could prevent one-third of road deaths,

Spanish researchers have calculated the probability of dying in road accidents on the basis of the time taken for the emergency services to arrive.

Their conclusions are clear: reducing the time between an accident taking place and the arrival of the emergency services from 25 to 15 minutes would cut the risk of death by one-third.

It is alarming after the week-ends to read the reports of the high number of deaths on the Spainish roads. A major factor has to be the disregard that many Spainish drivers have for speed limits. So many seem to think that the speed shown on the road signs is the minimum that they should drive!
