To coincide with the publication of Road Casualties GB 2010, a new website has just been launched to allow members of the public to search for and look up details of every road traffic crash reported to police since 2005.
Using a fully searchable map, users can locate crashes in a particular area, see what date they occurred on and how serious an incident it was; a detailed collision report can then be downloaded.
It is the first time that the public has ever been given such comprehensive access to this data, and will now allow interested residents, parish councils and transport professionals alike to secure the information that they need.
CrashMap uses data collected by the police about road traffic crashes occurring on British roads where someone is injured. This data is approved by the National Statistics Authority and reported on by the Department for Transport each year. This site uses data obtained directly from official sources but compiled in to an easy to use format showing each incident on a map.The site can be found on the data.gov listing for applications using government data sources. It allows users to:
- Freely search the whole country seeing where crashes have occurred
- Filter crashes by the year in which they took place
- Quickly see which of these were the most serious
- See the precise date on which the incident occurred
If you would like to know more details about the crash you can then view and download a more detailed report.
