RSS set to analyse 2017 casualty data
The Department for Transport (DfT) has announced that its Reported road casualties Great Britain, main results: 2017 is likely to be published at the end of September.
As soon as the figures are available Road Safety Support (RSS) will begin analysing the data and five-year casualty reduction progress reports will be produced for every force area in England and Wales.
The 43 Casualty Reduction Comparison Reports, which will reveal how areas performed between 2011 and 2017 and how their progress ranked nationally, will be available to download on the RSS members’ website.
The four-page documents will include tables, charts and graphs which will show the number of fatal, serious and slight casualties that occurred over the five-year period, and will be provided as part of the RSS membership package.
Members will also be given access to a more detailed five-year trend analysis, identifying the road user types of most concern in their areas.
This will then be followed by individual force area workbooks that will provide them with an in-depth local breakdown of the 2017 road casualty data, along with the partial postcodes for drivers and vulnerable road user casualties.
The high-level force specific analysis documents will assist RSS members with their enforcement, communications and casualty reduction activities.
