The DfT has updated the road safety comparison website with 2012 data on Stats 19 casualties, road traffic and road lengths and residential population data.
The site will also be updated with 2012 local authority revenue expenditure later this year.
The road safety comparison website provides information on local highways authorities’ performance in an easily accessible and straightforward format.
It is designed allow local people, lobby groups, practitioners, authority officers and councillors to compare local performance information on road safety in their area against other areas, and make their own assessment of performance.
Road safety has many influences and this site captures those that have the most power to influence the number of collisions and casualties. The site uses other data in order to put the numbers of collisions and casualties into context.
This site is designed to “increase transparency and build a capability to help citizens and communities solve problems in their area”. The commitment to create the site was part of the Strategic Framework for Road Safety.
