Road safety data
The goal of RoadSafetyBC and its partners is to end deaths and serious injuries on British Columbia’s roads. The data published on this page supports that goal.
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.
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.
