How It Works

We only use official data published by the Department for Transport which is based on records submitted to them by police forces. We cannot accept any responsibility for the accuracy of the data, not can we amend any of the details. For more information view the FAQ section.

The records relate only to personal injury accidents on public roads that are reported to the police, and subsequently recorded, using the STATS19 accident reporting form. Information on damage-only accidents, with no human casualties or accidents on private roads or car parks are not included in this data. Very few, if any, fatal accidents do not become known to the police although it is known that a considerable proportion of non-fatal injury accidents are not reported to the police. Figures for deaths refer to persons killed immediately or who died within 30 days of the accident.

Access to the online map including basic information about the crashes is available free of charge. You are welcome to quote the figures, takes screenshots, and use the information for whatever purpose you like but please do quote as the source and be prepared to acknowledge the DfT as the source of the information and Google for the background map.

Report access requires registration then purchase of report credits. You can purchase reports one at a time or in bulk with pricing information available in the FAQ section. Payments are made via the secure SagePay gateway.
