Casualties from collisions with goods vehicles, by mode

The 2010 London Freight Data Report (pdf), prepared for TfL by a team from the University of Westminster, has a wealth of information about goods vehicle traffic in London, some of it already already analysed over at Cycle of Futility.

The chart below is based on table 4.4 from the report, and shows the number of fatal and serious casualties resulting from collisions in which goods vehicles were involved in London, by mode of travel, for 1994-98 (averaged) and for 2008, the latest year available.

The (relatively) good news is that the number of car/taxi occupants, pedestrians, goods vehicles occupants and bus/coach occupants killed or seriously injured in collisions with goods vehicles has fallen sharply between 1994-98 and 2008. The bad news is that the trend for motorcyclists is almost and the number of cyclists killed or seriously injured (KSI) in collisions with goods vehicles has actually risen over the period, so that cyclists now account for 19% of goods vehicle-related KSIs, up from 8% in the mid 1990s.
