An 8-mile stretch of road in Cheshire is Britain's most dangerous highway, according to a survey conducted by the Road Safety Foundation.
The section of road between Macclesfield and Buxton is often used as a race track by motorcyclists, and has seen 43 serious or fatal accidents since 2001 with the majority of them being bikers. If bikers weren't included in the study the A61 between Barnsley and Wakefield would be Britains most dangerous road.
