This chapter will highlight the important of built environment in geometric separation of a road lane for a better lane management that will facilities the interaction of the road users on the road network. It also highlights the consequences of accident and accident reduction techniques for improvement into road safety measures domain. 2.1.2 GENERAL OVERVIEW OF U.K ROAD SAFETY AND THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT CAUTER MEASURES In general U.K road appears fairly safe by the road users for the entire transport mode, although novice driver and teenage pedestrians are view as a target group for all the danger between all the set of the road users due their respective attitude when exposure on roadway.
