This release gives an overview and commentary of reported road casualties in 2019. It provides the number of personal injury road traffic accidents in Great Britain that were reported by the police in 2019 using the STATS19 reporting system. It also includes the number of people killed or injured in these accidents and which road user group they were in. This is the first release of provisional headline accident and casualty figures for 2019, which will be followed by the final publication in September (Reported Road Casualties Great Britain 2019).
There were 1,748 reported road deaths in 2019, similar to the level seen since 2012, which follows a period of substantial reduction in fatalities from 2006 to 2010.
• There were 25,975 serious injuries in road traffic accidents reported to the police in 2019. However, comparison of this figure with earlier years should be interpreted with caution due to changes in systems for severity reporting by some police forces. The report contains further information and an estimate adjusted to account for this discontinuity. • There was a total of 153,315 casualties of all severities in reported road traffic accidents in 2019. This is 5% lower than in 2018 and is the lowest level since 1979 when this statistical series with current definitions and detail began. • Accounting for change in traffic, the rate of fatalities per billion vehicle miles has fallen by 2% from 5.38 in 2018 to 5.25 fatalities per billion vehicle miles in 2019.

Green4go Adrian trains people to become driving instructors and has taken a number of courses to maintain his level of professionalism and experience. If you are looking to become a driving instructor in Taunton or the Somerset area than have a chat with Ade for some friendly advice from a passionate trainer who has your well being at heart. https://www.green4go.co.uk/driving-in... https://www.green4go.co.uk/ We have a combined experience shared amongst numerous instructors. We pride ourselves in making our pupils smile. We teach to the highest standards but if you can’t have a laugh and a joke with your Instructor the lesson’s can drag on. We understand that pupils learn at different rates and that some become very nervous especially at busy junctions and roundabouts. On the other hand some pupils take to driving like a duck to water. Again we will guide these through as quickly as possible. Our wealth of experience includes the driving of larger vehicles and motor bikes. We have taught all over the country including difficult places like London but have been based in Taunton since 2005. We have taught other Driving Instructors, both to become instructors and to improve their grades as Instructors. At times we have pass rates in excess of 85% and as with all instructors we are CRB checked.
