NZTA: Road Safety Outcomes – the latest Quarterly Report (April – June 2019)
The most recent quarterly summary of road safety shows the overall picture of fatal and serious crash casualties in road crashes over the past five years. It shows that in the April-June quarter 103 people were killed in road crashes, the highest quarterly total since January-March 2018 (104) and that vehicles faults (mainly tyres and brakes) have contributed to between 3% and 6% of fatal and serious injury crashes consistently over the last five years. The report also shows that Police report serious injuries have fallen in most categories but ACC claims and hospitalisations for motorcyclists, pedestrians and cyclists continue to increase.
