National data, and estimates for more recent periods, are available from the Department of Transport.

Detailed collision information

Members of the public in North Yorkshire are allowed one free standard collision data request in any one financial year. All requests by commercial concerns such as transport consultants, solicitors or insurers, will be charged.

If a charge is due, we will send you a quote and, if you wish to continue, you will then be charged for the time spent in the production of the data. The cost of this is based on how large an area the data is required for, and how many years' data is required. The minimum charge is £40. The tables below provide further detail.

Please note that:

  • If a site/route has no collisions there will be no charge; and
  • If a site/route above 1.6km (1 mile) has less than five collisions we will charge the lower band.

If there is a charge, we will give you a quotation before you decide if you want to proceed.

You can also view collision statistics and reports for different areas within North Yorkshire here.

We will review accident records and let you know whether there is a history of collisions at that site. The information you receive will depend on the type of request you make:

Type of request Information you will receive
Statistics only A tabulated statistics report on up to ten years of data. The report will show the severity of the collisions and feature a monthly breakdown of the data.
Standard collision A plan showing collisions by severity and with references, full listings and a generic summary.
Raw data only The raw GIS/Access/CSV/Accsmap key accidents data (this does not include a plan). This can be provided for any number of years data.

We will need the following information from you:

  • what type of request you are making (statistics only, standard, or raw data);
  • how many years' collision data you require;
  • a plan showing the area you require the data for;
  • your name and contact details; and
  • whether you are making the request as a member of the public, interested public member groups, or a commercial concern.

Please contact us by email to request detailed collision information.
