Report a problem

Poor driving, collisions, near misses

Collision, near miss or road rage

Why it is SO IMPORTANT to report a collision to the police

The police have a duty to accept reports of all road collisions which result in an injury (even if minor). This includes single vehicle incidents. Even if the case is not pursued, the police must record details of the collision by filling in something called a STATS 19 form. The data collected via STATS 19 is lumped together, anonymised and published annually. It is used by local authorities to identify the roads where the most collisions take place, and which should qualify for safety improvements.

If you do not report your collision then this data does not reflect a true picture of cycle collisions on our roads.
