According to a study conducted by the Road Safety Foundation - a charity focused on the implementation of the European Road Assessment Programme - there has been a "marked improvement" in conditions on the country's most heavily-used roads, Herald Scotland reports.
However, despite this progress, there is still a "high" or "medium-high" risk of being involved in a serious road traffic accident on eight per cent of highways there.
Joanne Hill, director of the organisation, commented: "Motorways are Britain's safest roads and there are safety dividends from upgrading deficits in safety features on busy dual carriageways."
Furthermore, an official from Transport Scotland welcomed these figures but noted that work still needs to be done to drive this number down further in the near future.
