DfT 2018 Reported Road Casualties Release

  • Monday July 29, 2019

The DfT has released it’s 2018 main results on Reported Road Casualties Great Britain.

This release gives an overview and commentary of reported road casualties in 2018. It provides the number of personal injury road traffic accidents in Great Britain that were reported by the police in 2018 using the STATS19 reporting system. It also includes the number of people killed or injured in these accidents and which road user group they were in. This is the first release of provisional headline accident and casualty figures for 2018, which will be followed by the final publication in September (Reported Road Casualties Great Britain 2018).

The report showed that:

  • 1,882 people died in road collisions – a 1% decline on the previous year – continuing the “plateau” in GB road deaths since 2010.
  • 24,484 seriously injured casualties reported. Due to changes on recording methods, comparisons with previous years may be misleading for serious injury numbers.
  • 160,378 slightly injured casualties reported. Adjusted figures from the NAO show a continuation in the downward trend since 2014.
