One can find road accidents stats for anywhere in the country at I looked at figures for 2012-14 along this stretch of road. Due to the way incidents are shown on the map, itís not always clear if the accident was on the A40 or one of the slip roads, but I counted about 130 accidents on the A40 itself resulting in slight injuries between the junction for the Polish War Memorial and the Hangar Lane junction, nine accidents resulting in serious injuries and one fatal accident. Accidents appear to be clustered near junctions (no surprise there), which was why the fixed cameras were positioned where they were. On the remaining road to Paddington, there were four other fatalities (one between Hangar Lane and Horn Lane, one at Horn Lane and two on the outbound route near the Harrow Rd junction). Itís not possible to tell which accidents involved cars travelling at above the speed limit as this information is not provided.

Taking the Hangar Lane tunnel as a detailed instance, there appears to have been either one or two accidents (the map is unclear), causing slight injury, in the last three years Ė so no safety justification for the 30 mph speed limit.
