The A15 is a major road in the UK running from London, passing through Lincolnshire, before ending in Grimsby. Construction of the A15 began in 1933 as part of the Birmingham to Stanstead major road expansion programme, which aimed to improve the flow of traffic across England. The A15 is one of the most heavily used roads in Britain, with around 54,000 vehicles per day using the road in 2018. The busiest times on the A15 are usually at the weekends and holidays during the summer.

The A15 has a reputation as a busy and dangerous road to drive on, with 482 reportable road incidents on the road in 2018. Of these collisions, 123 were classed as serious and seven proved fatal. In an attempt to lower the number of incidents and reduce road accidents, Lincolnshire County Council have set out a number of plans to improve road safety along the A15 including introducing an average speed system, increasing lighting and building speed-controlled roundabouts.
