Revision

Table RAS40006 was originally published on 26 September 2019. Some of the 2018 figures have been revised due to a processing error. None of the headline statistics have been affected and remain unchanged.

The department is trialling a new road safety data download tool, for users to create bespoke reports.

Statistics on reported road casualties in Great Britain for 2018 show that there were:

  • 1,784 reported road deaths, similar to the level seen since 2012
  • 160,597 casualties of all severities in reported road traffic accidents, a decrease of 6% compared to 2017
