Road death and injuries

The Derby and Derbyshire annual casualty report shows what has been achieved in road traffic casualty reduction within our area, as well as detailed analysis of casualty trends within each local authority district. We monitor safety at road junctions and personal injury collision records held by the police.

Annual casualty report

The purpose of the report is to:

  • highlight the activities that road safety professionals have carried out to reduce road deaths and injuries in Derby and Derbyshire
  • provide analysis of the types of crashes that are occurring in different parts of the county - the report features sections on every district and borough council area in Derbyshire as well as the area covered by Derby City Council.

The analysis in the report will help road safety professionals to decide what they need to do to prevent road deaths and injuries in the future.

Details of our road casualty figures for 2015:

  • 23 people were killed
  • 301 people were badly hurt
  • 1,913 people were slightly hurt

Car users make up the largest group of killed or seriously injured casualties. That's why road safety education and policing in Derbyshire focuses heavily on the fatal 4 behaviours:

  • speeding
  • travelling without a seat belt
  • drink or drug driving
  • using a mobile phone while driving

The casualty report also identifies 3 priority groups that we need to focus on in order to reduce road deaths and injuries in the future:

  • motorcyclists
  • people aged 60 and over (especially car drivers aged 70 plus)
  • adult pedal cyclists

The full casualty report is attached to this page.

Accident investigation

The traffic and safety teams regularly monitor the personal injury collision records held by the police to identify sites, including road junctions, where collisions are occurring on a regular basis.

Dangerous road junctions

We constantly monitor safety at road junctions and investigate any accidents or public concerns which are identified.

Some examples of work which may be carried out to improve safety at junctions include:
