ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the contents of the Road Accidents Great Britain 2000 which focus on detailed information on casualties in personal injury road accidents in the country, supplementing the summary statistics released in 2001. 3,409 people were killed on roads in Great Britain in 2000. The number of children killed or seriously injured fell by nine percent between 1999 and 2000. About half of accidental deaths among children are due to road accidents. Provisional estimates indicate that the number of deaths in accidents involving drunk driving was over ten percent higher in 2000 than in 1999. Pedestrian casualties fell by two percent between 1999 and 2000 and the number of killed or seriously injured casualties was down three percent. In 2000, the number of casualties among users of two-wheeled motor vehicles rose by eight percent and the number of deaths increased by 11 percent to 605.
