Road accidents Scotland 2006

This publication presents statistics of the numbers of injury road accidents (that is, road accidents in which one or more people are injured or killed) in Scotland which were reported by the police using the “Stats 19” statistical returns. Each accident is classified according to the severity of the injury to the most seriously injured person involved in the accident. Very few, if any, fatal accidents do not become known to the police. However, there could be many non-fatal injury accidents which are not reported by the public to the police, and are therefore not counted in these statistics because the police can only include in their returns details of the accidents of which they are aware. The contents page lists the differentparts of this publication, which include: summary - shows the main trends in the reported numbers of road accidents and casualties in recent years; commentary - includes descriptions of the trends in the reported numbers of road accidents and casualties, more detailed analyses (of the numbersof accidents, of the statistics about motorists, and of the numbers of casualties) and comparisons of the Scottish figures with some other countries' numbers; casualty reduction targets for 2010 - describes progress towards the casualty reduction targets for 2010; contributory factors - sets out the main results of the contributory factors, which were added to the "Stats 19" specification at the start of 2005; comparison of the police "Stats 19" road casualty figures with some other figures for Scotland - compares the "Stats 19" figures with the numbers of registered deaths and emergency hospital admissions due to road accidents, and provides some other relevant information; and • statistical tables - containing all the detailed tables, many of which are illustrated by charts. There are also several annexes and an index.
