To ask Her Majesty's Government how many fatal, serious and slight road accidents there were from 1997 to 2009; and what is their assessment of the changes in the figures over that period.
The information requested is available for Great Britain from Table A in the following file, entitled "Reported personal injury road accidents, vehicles involved and their resulting casualties: GB 1979-2009": www.dft.gov.uk/excel/173025/221412/ 221549/227755/315281/AccVehCas19792009.xls
Our assessment is that a number of factors have contributed to the reduction in reported personal injury road accidents in Great Britain over this period. These include policy interventions related to vehicle design, engineering, enforcement and education.
