DataBC’s data catalogue helps users to find, understand and explore data. Visit it for data found in some of the RoadSafetyBC reports shown below.

Motor Vehicle Related Fatalities: 10-Year Statistics for British Columbia

Motor Vehicle Related Fatalities: 10-Year Statistics for British Columbia [PDF, 15.1MB] reports on fatalities from 2010 to 2019.

Data in the report is from B.C.'s Traffic Accident System, ICBC and Transport Canada. It's reconciled against data from the BC Coroners Service.

B.C. uses the data to determine if its road safety initiatives are working and to identify possible future action. Police and other stakeholders use it for enforcement strategies and public education campaigns.
