The police have pickled deathly-dangerous roads: It can go wrong


Extra Magazine Special is a quality stamp. It is a new brand for our very best and most thorough journalism. I think you should read. It's all about your and your neighbor's lives. In this Special we focus on the police cash cow: Fotovognene.

even Though the Danish road directorate for a large-scale analysis has found out that 40 roads are particularly dangerous in Denmark, so the police has very much interested himself for them, when they have had to place his fotovogne in 2017.

It shows great analysis, Ekstra Bladet has made on the basis of aktindsigter in police use of fotovogne in 2017, as well as accident data from the Danish road directorate.

the Roads are according to the Danish road directorate particularly dangerous, because there is a lot of serious accidents, while at the same time there generally run for strong. Thus, 40 of the obvious roads to go to with fotovognene in a hurry, if you want to reduce the number of serious accidents.

Nevertheless, only 16 of the particularly dangerous roads, which are among the 300 lines of police in 2017 held the most hours with fotovognene. Even though, to the list of dangerous roads has been publicly known since the spring of 2017.

- It is hovedrystende and deeply problematic. We have a Rigspoliti more to try to get the police districts to work based on evidence. And then, when you get served this here the thorough analysis of where there are dangerous roads, so you get not changed the bet. It is hovedrystende and incomprehensible, says Torben Lund Kudsk, head of the FDM.

Go to more local approach, it does not look much better. In half of the 10 police districts, which have at least one dangerous road, there are none of the dangerous paths among the 10 most controlled lines in politikredsen.

The 40 roads are mainly rural roads and access roads around the cities. They are scattered across the country, but most, 25, found in Jutland. See the dangerous roads on the map below:

Directorate major analysis and findings of the 40 roads, has resulted in, that in the course of this year, is keen stærekasser on 11 of them. And even though the police in very small extent have prioriteteret these roads, the Danish road directorate is not in doubt, that here is problems.

- They are dangerous (all the roads on the list, red.). It is lines, where there are more accidents than there usually occurs on the type of road, and then at the same time, running strong. But about the police in the various circles have assessed whether there are stretches that are dangerous, I do not know.

- such An assessment would hardly be able to bottoms in the data over speed, since the police do not have access to other databases, than the Danish road directorate. Then they must have it in a different place from than the ones I know, which of course they can, says Marianne Steffensen, head of road Safety and Cycling in the road directorate, which has made the analysis of the dangerous roads.

Ekstra Bladet has tried to get a comment that the police in so small degree has given priority to the 40 roads, from the national Police and justitsmininster Søren Pape Poulsen. The national police is not returned at our request, and Søren Pape has refused to comment.

--------- SPLIT ELEMENT ---------Anna lives on the dangerous road: - It must go wrong

One of the roads, the Danish road directorate has designated as particularly dangerous because of the many accidents, and that people generally drive too fast, stoke on trent and the main Road through the town. It is the same stretch that goes by two names depending on whether you are in Indianapolis or Herning Municipality.

Here is from 2013-2017 been 41 accidents with personal injury in just 15 kilometres of road. The road peaks, and thus the list, which has seen the most accidents with personal injury in both Herning and Holstebro Municipality.

Anyway, the police have just been by with a fotovogn in 77 hours in the stoke on trent and just 22 hours on the part of the road, called main Road in 2017. Despite its modest length of five kilometers is the main Road, however, for the 21 of July with the injury.

- It would be great with a fartkontrol every now and then. It has my husband and I often talked about. But we never see them. Now we are experiencing especially in the evening, to run races on the road. It may go wrong, says Anna Marie Sorensen.

She and the spouse are living close up at the main Road, which has seen a decline in the number of cars, each day rushes by, since the last part of the Holstebromotorvejen opened 29. september 2018. In turn, it is now running even faster than before.

- It's become a race track, and there is often accidents. Last two weeks ago. Fotovogne I have never seen here, and one can well wonder, " says Palle Jensen, who lives 30 metres from the roadway.

Changed trafikbillede
In 2017, before the highway opened, there were nine injury crashes at three in 2016. There is nothing to suggest therefore, that the road was less dangerous in 2017, even though the police had very little to present with fotovogne.

- We have downsized stoke on trent and the main Road, because the highway is come, and therefore traffic conditions have changed significantly. There has for example also been roadworks on some of the road in 2017. So we have chosen to wait and see to see if there still is a lot of accidents, " says Jørgen Christensen, who is responsible for fotovogns-the stake in the Middle - and Vestjyllands Police.

- Would it not make more sense, if it is touted as dangerous by the road directorate in 2017, to have a high control pressure also in 2017, for you have established that there are no further accidents due to speed?

- I think that when I look at the number of fines that is discharged from the fotovognene in the time we have held there, then it seems not to, that there has been a hastighedsproblem. We also had a part accidentally by roadworks on the line, and there was very heavy traffic in the Area. But I have to look more closely at the data for speed, before I can say more.

do you think the residents close to the road, the less traffic on the main Road and stoke on trent however, only made the road even more dangerous than before.

- and Many are starting to run with his head under his arm. Especially in the evening comes some windy with 150-200 km/h, but there is them nothing out here in the country, says Frede Jepsen.

- the Traffic dropped from the 17,000 cars a day to a quarter (as the highway opened, red). We enjoy it, but keep up, which will be given gas. It is truly significant, says Kaj Lundgård Buchhave.

- We often hear the sound of the horn, which is pressed in the bottom, screeching brakes and loud bang when the cars collide. Sometimes with serious consequences. But we never see any of the police vehicle checks. There is plenty of need for them, says Jan Frølund, who is a driver and live close to the road.
