Second successive record for Road Safety GB website
A record number of people visited the Road Safety GB website in November 2013, for a second consecutive month.
The site received 21,703 visits in November, beating the previous record of 20,440 which was set in October 2013.
In terms of unique visitors, the November figure was 14,227, a significant increase of 12% over the previous record of 12,694 achieved in May 2013.
At 59,743, the site also received a record number of page views, beating the previous high of 58,030 in January 2013.
The two news stories that attracted the highest number of visits during the month were the report on the debate about 20mph limits at National Conference, and a report about surprising results in National Signposts 2013.
Nick Rawlings, editor of Road Safety News, said: “Naturally we are delighted that our readership continues to increase. It is an indication that there is healthy interest in road safety from both within and outside the profession.
“It is likely that the National Conference in Harrogate attracted some new readers – possibly as a result of the excellent live twitter feed from the conference hall.”
