The M2 motorway is a major motorway in the southeast of England, running from London to Kent. It was the first motorway to be built in Britain and was opened in 1959, and forms part of the route from London to Dover.

In terms of safety, the M2 is generally considered to be a safe road. In 2018, research published by the Department for Transport showed that the stretch of M2 between junction 1 (Swanley) and junction 4 (Gillingham) was the second safest motorway out of all 40 motorways in Britain. The research showed that along this stretch there were an average of 0.44 fatalities per 100 kilometres from 2009 to 2018.
