Road Casualties GB

28 February 2015

Following the release of the provisional estimates of road casualties in Great Britain between Jul 2014 – Sept 2014 there was much public debate about the causes and what priorities government should accord to developing a solution. 

However readers should note that although in the year ending September 2014 there were 1,730 reported road fatalities, a 1 per cent increase from 1,711 in the previous year, part of the reason for these increases over the rolling years was the unusually low number of casualties in the first quarter of 2013. This resulted in a large increase in casualties between Q1 2013 and Q1 2014 with offsetting falls in other quarters. This is discussed in more detail on in the Q2 2014 publication.
