THE most dangerous roads in Scotland have been revealed in an interactive online map.  

Created by two road safety experts, CrashMap highlights the location of every collision on the roads in a given period.

The detailed tool shows you not only the severity of the crash – slight, serious or fatal – but also when it took place, the number of vehicles involved and the number of casualties reported.

The data used is taken directly from official government statistics, which is based on records submitted to them by the police.
