MOTORISTS in Somerset are set to be taught by parish councils to drive more safely after shocking new statistics revealed that 60 per cent of road casualties in the county happened on the A38.

The Somerset Road Safety Partnership (SRSP) announced that more than 720 injuries were recorded on the road in the last five years and believes local drivers are to blame.
