Objectives:

This report delivers statistics relating to all Road Traffic Incidents (RTIs) reported to the police in Great Britain in 2014.

Methodology:

Statistics are compiled from the STATS19 database of road traffic RTIs.

Key Findings

  • In 2014 there were 8 fatal, 33 serious and 118 slight RTIs involving pedestrians and one ‘other vehicle’.

  • In 2014 there were 36 fatal, 261 serious and 1,329 slight RTIs involving ‘other vehicles’.

  • In 2014 there were 32 fatal, 111 serious and 436 slight RTIs involving agricultural vehicles on the highway.

  • Three wheelers are included in car RTI statistics.

  • ‘Other vehicles’ are often included in the ‘All vehicle’ statistics which also include instances where vehicle type was not recorded. Where vehicle type is reported as ‘other vehicle’ this may also include instances where vehicle type was not recorded.

  • In 2014 reported casualties by built-up and non built-up roads and motorways, severity and road user type show that more RTIs involving other vehicles occur in built-up areas, few occur on motorways.

Comments:

The national road casualty statistics remain the single largest source of RTI data but the ‘other vehicles’ category is not broken down into specific vehicle types such as ambulances. Agricultural vehicles are separated.
