A new website has been launched which gives members of the public details of every road traffic crash reported to police since 2005.
Using ‘CrashMap.co.uk’, users can locate crashes in a particular area, see what date they occurred on and how serious the incident was. A detailed collision report can also be downloaded.
CrashMap uses data collected by the police about road traffic crashes occurring on British roads where someone is injured. This data is approved by the National Statistics Authority and reported on by the DfT each year.
According to CrashMap, the data will allow interested residents, councils and transport professionals to secure the information they need.
