Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Information requested

For each year, 2015 to 2021, and for fatal and serious accidents which involved a pedal cycle, please provide data for the numbers of each contributory factor allocated to:

  1. Pedal cyclists; and
  2. All other vehicles involved (i.e. non-pedal cyclists).


Please find the requested information in the attached spreadsheet. Please note that due to a change in the way the severity of casualties was recorded in mid-2019, comparison of serious casualties before and after 2020 should be treated with caution.
