Reported road collisions, vehicles and casualties tables for Great Britain

Changes to tables

In 2021 alongside the publication of the annual road casualty statistics, we made changes to the terminology used and to the format of the data tables including to meet government accessibility standards.

Further details of the changes are set out in our summary document and a mapping from previous tables is also available in the table index.

We always welcome any feedback on the content or format of our publications, which can be provided by email to the road accident and safety statistics team.

For the publication of the 2023 statistics onwards we will be making a methodological change to RAS0403 to include rates based on motor vehicle traffic only. This is because the department does not consider pedal cycle traffic to be robust at the local authority level. The updated table, containing data up to 2022 is provided for here.
