This data consists of collisions recorded by the Police that occurred on a highway, involved one or more vehicles and human death or personal injury. It only includes collisions that were notified to the Police within 30 days of occurrence. Devon County Council have conducted accuracy and validation checks on this data and while every reasonable effort is made to ensure that the information provided is correct no guarantees for the accuracy of information are made. New collision data is added in whole calendar years, around June each year, once the data has been fully checked and verified by the Department for Transport. Plymouth and Torbay collisions are not included as they form their own unitary council areas
