We use personal injury accident data recorded by the police to highlight problem sites by looking at where clusters of accidents appear and the causes of these accidents.
Whilst we are the largest London borough, with the largest road network and one of the highest car ownerships, accidents have continued to decline over a number of years.
The information obtained from the accident details is used by road safety officers and traffic engineers in prioritising and targeting problem sites. In addition by road safety officers
• to decide routes for the walking bus scheme and safer routes to school
• when working on statistics projects as part of the traffic education scheme in local schools
