Response

Attached is a copy of most of the information requested in the format you asked for. Data for 2020 is still being collected and verified and is not available at the moment. The figures are for calendar years and cover the whole of the A9 which includes both trunk and non trunk sections of the road. It should also be noted that from 2019 injury accident data is now being collected by Police Scotland using a new reporting system called CRaSH. Due to changes in the way the severity of casualties are recorded in the new system, serious and combined killed/serious figures are not comparable with previous years.
