Road Accident Data

Series abstract

The Road Accident Data are collected by the Department for Transport and comprise road accident statistics collected from information about personal injury road accidents and their consequent casualties in Great Britain, to a common national standard. The aim of collecting and publishing national road accident statistics is to inform public debate and to provide the basis for determining and monitoring effective road safety policies to reduce the road accident casualty toll. The UK Data Archive holds annual Road Accident Data from 1985 onwards. A similar series, the Northern Ireland Police Recorded Injury Road Traffic Collision Data, are available from 2004 onwards.
