Wirral road casualties
The latest Department for Transport data for Wirral road casualties (the data reported for 2013) was published in June 2014. This showed that
- the largest group of killed or seriously injured (KSI) casualties was pedestrians (34)
- the second largest group of KSI casualties was motorcyclists (31)
- cyclist KSI casualties (29) were at a 20-year high - see chart below
- car occupant casualties (also 29) have declined markedly over the last 8 years
- the number of pedestrian KSI casualties is lower than 8 years ago, but this fall is in line with the national decline in walking, and so there is no clear evidence of progress in making Wirral roads less dangerous for pedestrians.
