The A19 is a major trunk road in the United Kingdom, running through England and Scotland. It is 177 miles long and runs from the A1 in Yorkshire to the A90 in Fife, Scotland. The A19 has a long history dating back to Roman times, with some parts of the current route being a part of the old Roman road, the Ermine Street.

The A19 is the busiest north-south route in the UK, and experiences a high amount of traffic at all times of the day. It is particularly busy at peak times in the morning and evening, as well as over weekends with increased tourism traffic. In terms of safety, the A19 is generally considered safe, although there is a risk of congestion during peak times. Also, in some straight sections there is a risk of speeding, with some drivers using the road as a race track due to its fast flowing nature. Local government policies, such as average speed cameras, have been very effective in controlling speeds over the years and this has helped to increase safety on the road.

In general, the A19 is an important road for transport, linking various towns and cities in the north of the UK and providing an important route for both local and long-distance traffic.
