How It Works

Here's how CrashMap works:

Official data is published by Department for Transport

We only use official data published by the Department for Transport which is based on records submitted to them by police forces.

Our data is updated annually each summer for the preceding year, although we do receive provisional in-year updates.
For more information view the FAQ section.

Personal injury accidents records

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.

Access to the online map

Access to the online map including basic information about the crashes is available free of charge.

You are welcome to quote the figures, and take screen images plus please credit and follow the other rules in our FAQ
