Accident data for some, mainly rural, dual carriageway roads have been examined in order to assess the possible effect on the frequency of casualties and of damage-only accidents of central safety fences installed as a general policy on such roads. It is estimated that the erection of a safety fence would result in a reduction in fatal casualties, little change in serious and slight casualties and an increase in non-injury accidents.
