Danger roads warning.

YORKSHIRE has four of the UK's most dangerous roads, which are made even more hazardous due to a lack of white lines, a road safety group has said.

Eight in 10 of the deadliest highways have badly-worn centre line markings, according to a report from the Road Safety Markings Association (RSMA).

Half the lines on these most-dangerous roads fall below the minimum specifiable standards, the association added.

The RSMA said that one of the worst roads - a five-mile section of the A6135 north of Sheffield - had the poorest road markings in the survey, with three-quarters of markings non-existent or highly worn.

Other roads found to have poor white lines were the A61 Barnsley to Wakefield road, the A642 from the M62 junction 30 (Wakefield) to the A61 (Wakefield); and the A645 Knottingley to the A1041 (Snaith).
