Key 2010 Reported Road Casualty Statistics Trn/2011/1

Listen

9. Accidents and Casualties by Police Force and Local Authority area (Tables 8 & 9)

9.1 Tables 8 and 9 show the reported numbers of accidents and casualties in each Police Force area and each Local Authority area. These are provisional figures, which are subject to a higher degree of revision from late returns and amendments. In addition, there can be quite large percentage year-to-year fluctuations in the figures for areas (as roads are often the boundary between areas/forces) within Scotland, particularly for those with the lower numbers. Therefore, the annual average for the latest five years may be a better guide to the "normal" level of the numbers than the figures for the latest year.
