Accidents, casualties and safety

Road Accident Statistics play a leading part in the Government's Road Safety Strategy.

In addition to the STATS19 information on road accidents, other data sources directly related to road safety have been used to compile the statistics on this web page. These include death registrations and coroners' reports as well as traffic and vehicle registration data plus Home Office data on motor vehicle offences.
