2010 Road Traffic Crashes in the ACT
SUMMARY OF MAIN POINTS
There were 7761 „on-road‟ recorded traffic crashes in 2010 which involved 15152vehicles and resulted in 800 casualties including 19 fatalities and 122 persons admitted to hospital.
ACT crash numbers gradually declined between 2000 and 2005 and increased between 2006 and 2009. The number of fatal crashes each year in the ACT is somewhat variable but has averaged 14.3 over the last 10 years.
Comparison with Other Australian States
Since 1991, the following ACT rates have been the lowest amongst all Australian States and lower than the national average: -rates of persons hospitalised per population and per vehicle kms of travel; -costs of serious casualty crashes per population and per vehicle kms of travel. The ACT rate of persons killed per population is also generally lower than the national average, apart from 2005 where the ACT rate was equal to the national rate.
In 2010 about 44% of all casualties occurred to people younger than 30 years of age. The single most vulnerable age group seems to be between 20 and 24 accounting for nearly 15% of all casualties.
Males account for 56% of all casualties.
Pedestrian casualties account for around 5% of all casualties, 44% of which were younger than 24 years of age. No pedestrians were killed in 2010.
The most frequent accident-type is the ‟rear end collision‟ (44% of all crashes). In terms of severity, the „right-angle collision‟ type is the most frequent (15% of all casualty crashes).
The majority (around 82%) of vehicles involved in crashes were cars and station wagons. Around 9% of vehicles were utilities and panel vans. Around 1.9% of vehicles involved were trucks, and around 1.8% of vehicles involved were motor cycles or scooters.
Position in Vehicle
Drivers and motorcycle riders account for more than 70% of all casualties. Front seat passengers, pedal cyclists and pedestrians also registered relatively high casualty rates.
Fixed Object Struck
The „struck object‟ accident-type accounts for around 7.0% of all crashes and around 13% of all casualties. The most frequent objects struck are kerb or guard rail. In total 6% of 2010 fatal crashes struck an object.
It seems that January and June represent the safest period with the least number of crashes. The highest number and proportion of crashes occur on Thursdays and Fridays. Weekends produced the lowest number of crashes. The sharp peaks from 8 am to 9 am and 5 pm to 6 pm coincide with the relatively short and confined traffic volume peaks in the ACT.
The majority of crashes occurred in fine weather conditions. Rain may have been a contributing factor in around 17% of crashes.
Traffic Control Type
Approximately 57% of all casualty crashes occurred at uncontrolled locations, followed by intersections controlled by Give Way signs and traffic lights.
