Driver density

Nick Austin (letter, 6 February) suggests that the UK's high rate of road deaths is due to its high population density. Belgium and the Netherlands are both much more densely populated than the UK, but while Belgium's roads are more deadly than British ones, Dutch roads are safer. The reasons for this are driver behaviour and road design, not population density.
