The A380 is a major artery in the South West of England, constructed in the 1950s as a main route through small Devon towns and countryside. The road links Kingsbridge in the South to Torquay in the North, and is the main route into South Devon, connecting to A38 and A380 which lead to Plymouth.

The A380 is busiest in the summer months, when it joins up with the A38, the main motorway route heading into the South West, and links with popular tourist destinations such as Torquay and Paignton. During peak holiday seasons, heavy traffic can cause delays and long queues.

Despite a significant increase in traffic on the A380 in recent years, the road has seen a decline in overall road casualties, dropping from 13 in 2004 to just 5 in 2018. However, this is still higher than the national average and should be considered when using the road.

The A380 is an important route leading into Devon, and while drivers should exercise caution due to the high volume of traffic, the road is generally considered to be safe.
