Road Casualty Figures rise in 2011

The Department for Transport has today published the latest statistics relating to casualties on the roads of Great Britain. It sadly shows that there was a rise in the number of people killed and seriously injured in 2011.

Main findings:


§  The annual number of people killed in road accidents reported to the police has increased, by 3 per cent, from 1,850 in 2010 to 1,901 in 2011. This is the first increase since 2003.

§  The number of people reported killed or seriously injured has also increased by 2 per cent to 25,023 from 24,510 in 2010 – the first annual increase since 1994.

§  The total number of casualties (slight injuries, serious injuries and fatalities) in road accidents reported to the police in Great Britain in 2011 continued to fall, by 2 per cent, from 208,648 in 2010 to 203,950 in 2011.

§  Total reported child casualties (ages 0-15) have continued to fall, by 0.5 per cent in 2011 to 19,474. The number of children killed or seriously injured also fell, decreasing by 4 per cent to 2,412 in 2011, from 2,502 in 2010.

Re: Road Casualty Figures rise in 2011

I understand as well that this upward movement was mirrored across the Channel by similar (synchronised?) increases.
Strange!  Now why would that be?  Any ideas?

Re: Road Casualty Figures rise in 2011

Hi
The KSI figures should also be corelated to the vehicle/miles and vehicle/hours stats.
Raw data can be interpreted many ways.

For instance if Vehicle/miles have increased by 5% then an increase in KSI's is a lot less worrying than they would be if the V/M figure has decreased

Re: Road Casualty Figures rise in 2011

If you have a spare week, you can digest the full document.

The figures you are looking for are there.

I'll probably draw the same conclusion as Ralge.

In 2010 the Government stopped Road Safety funding to Local Authorities (In 2009 it had been £625m). They also removed reduction targets The result -  No engineering, no education and no focus.
At the same time the Home Office directed Chief Constables to concentrate on crime and the victims of crime. The result -  No enforcement.

This comment from the Transport Secretary sums it up,
Speaking in the House of Commons, Transport Secretary Justine Greening said "exceptional weather" at the beginning and end of 2010 may have contributed to the increase in deaths.

Re: Road Casualty Figures rise in 2011

This is what the report suggests caused a year-on-year rise:

Adverse weather (heavy snow falls) experienced in the first and last quarters of 2010 but not in 2011 are likely to be a factor in the increase in serious road casualties and fatalities recorded in 2011.

So with less people on the roads, less incidents happened.

Perhaps that's the solution - a huge snow machine to stop anyone going out.

Re: Road Casualty Figures rise in 2011

Not so sure about that.
A bloke took heed of the road safety advice to always wear white at night.

He got knocked down by a snow plough lol
