Pedestrian Road Casualties, 2010
- The number of pedestrian road casualties has declined since 1979.
- The decline in pedestrian casualties has been greatest for the younger and oldest age groups
- Looking in more detail at the period since 2000, child pedestrian casualties have fallen most.
- Most pedestrian casualties take place in 30mph zones, and most pedestrian fatalities occur on ‘A’ roads.
- Pedestrians are more likely to be struck by a car than any other vehicle.
- Pedestrian casualties occur all around the road carriageway.
- A significant minority of pedestrian casualties arise from hit and run accidents.
- Since 2001, around a third of pedestrian casualties occur on a Friday or Saturday.
The key points in this bulletin cover the following issues for child (aged 0-15) pedestrian casualties
- Child pedestrian casualties have declined since 1979.
- and have declined as a proportion of all pedestrian casualties since 2001.
- A substantial minority of child pedestrian casualties were travelling to or from school.
- Most child pedestrian casualties occurred in 30 mph zones.
- Most child pedestrians are hit by cars; in fine weather.
The number of road traffic fatalities during 2010 has been revised downwards (at 3 August 2011) from 95 to 89 compared with figures used to compile this Statistical Bulletin. This change does not affect earlier years and the figures for seriously and slightly injured casualties are unchanged.
The reason for this change is that these fatalities have been reclassified as being the result of natural causes, rather than the result of the associated traffic accident. The people involved were all older car drivers and no other person was involved in any of these incidents. So this change has also reduced the number of accidents in 2010 by six as well. This revision only affects South Wales Police and changes the number of fatalities in that area during 2010 from 36 to 30.
This revision does not affect any of the figures shown in this Bulletin about pedestrians and so this Bulletin is not being changed; though the revision to total fatalities may affect any comparisons between casualties in this group and casualties as a whole for 2010.
