Deprived and ethnic minority pedestrians at highest risk on Britain’s roads

1 June 2021

People from poorer communities are more likely to be killed or injured on Britain’s roads, with those from ethnic minority groups (excluding white minorities) more at risk.

The ‘Road traffic and injury risk in ethnic minority populations’ report, produced by Agilysis and walking charity Living Streets, examined four groups of pedestrian casualties: ethnic minority (excluding white minorities) pedestrians living in deprived areas; white pedestrians living in deprived areas; ethnic minority (excluding white minorities) pedestrians living in non-deprived areas; and white pedestrians living in non-deprived areas
