Annual Statistics Report

The following road casualty statistics relate to injury collisions reported to/recorded by the Police (Stats19 data). For more information on Stats19 data see our Data FAQs page.


We are part of the Vision Zero Road Safety Partnership and have a shared target to reduce 50% of killed and seriously injured (KSI) road casualties by 2030. Because of our focus on this the following dashboard pages will display killed and seriously (KSI) injured figures by default. You can however add slight injury data into the display by selecting this in the yellow filter button in the top right hand of the page.

The last page of the report displays our progress towards our target of 50% reduction in killed and serious injured on the roads by 2030.


Where Report

The following “Where” report provides data by various geographies. You will find collision numbers by Devon districts and electoral areas, as well as statistics by road type. There’s also a heatmap which shows where all the individual collisions occurred. Towards the end of the report you will find a map displaying A and B road route performance. You will also find a list of cluster sites identified (also known as accident black spots).


Who Report

In this section we can see the different road user types who have been injured in collisions for example cyclists, pedestrians and goods vehicles. We also see the average distance from home statistics which typically show most road casualties that were injured are local as they live less than 9 miles away from the collision location.


Why Report

The following report displays data on contributory factors associated with collisions. Up to 6 factors per collision can be recorded by a Police Officer.

Important note on the accuracy of this data: Contributory factors are the opinion of the officer at the time of recording and if subsequent investigations suggest other factors are more relevant the record may not be updated to reflect this.


When Report

In this section we can see the seasonal trends of when collisions occur alongside weather data. This report also shows the most likely time of the day that collisions occur.
