The chairman of a north-east community safety group has said the biggest danger on the A90 is the drivers who use it.
Sandy Allan, chairman of Peterhead’s safety group, said there was nothing “inherently wrong” with the main Aberdeen to Fraserburgh road, but called for better driver education.
He said: “The main issue, as I see it and the community safety group sees it, is trying to make drivers more aware of the conditions on the road and travelling at speeds consistent with them.
“There is nothing inherently wrong with the road, it’s a driver education issue.
“There are obviously various junctions that could be improved, but there’s no major issue with it between the Toll of Birness and Peterhead, apart from drivers and driver behaviour.”
His views were echoed by A90 campaigner Gillian Owen, who said that driver “frustration” was to blame for many accidents.
The Ellon councillor said: “People are frustrated because they get stuck behind one, two or three lorries. We need to calm down a bit and accept that we can’t go as fast as we would like.
“You get to the Ellon roundabout and you see the number of people that put their foot down and some of them don’t even stop.”
