Response

1. Information on pedal cyclists involved in accidents in 2017 is available to you via the Reported Road Casualties Scotland publication, which contains Scotland-level figures for 2017 here http://bit.ly/2qHwqB3 and provisional Scotland-level figures for 2018 can be found in Key Reported Road Casualties here https://bit.ly/2qyR1KQ.

Finalised figures for 2018 will be published in Reported Road Casualties Scotland in October 2019. Information for accidents in 2019 is not available at the moment, as it is still being collected from Police Scotland.

2. We do not hold a breakdown for all of the geographical areas that you have requested. I have produced a table with a breakdown of the data by current Local Authority areas which I am attaching at Annex A (this also includes the figures for Scotland as a whole).
