“Oxfordshire has one of the largest ‘rural’ road networks in south east England.

“Almost 60 per cent of road deaths in Oxfordshire occur on rural roads.

“Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service would like to take this opportunity to remind all road users to take extra care whilst driving during the winter months and especially on rural roads that may even be familiar to drivers.”
