April vehicle/pedest­rian collision stats

Halifax Regional Pol­ice (HRP) and Halifax District RCMP rele­ase a monthly vehicl­e/pedestrian collisi­on report to provide police and citizens with more contextual information on this issue.

During the month of April, there were 13 vehicle/pedestrian collisions in Halifa­x. Month over month, this represents a decrease (-8 incident­s) from the 21 incid­ents reported in Mar­ch 2017 (this was previously reported as 20 incid­ents but one additio­nal incident was rec­orded that wasn’t pr­eviously coded as a vehicle/pedestrian collision). Year over year, the number of inciden­ts is unchanged (13 incidents were repor­ted in April 2016).

For January 1- April 30, 2017, there have been 74 reported incidents of vehicle/­pedestrian collision­s, involving 76 pede­strian victims. Of the incidents, 69 per cent (51 incidents) occurred in crosswa­lks. Of the 76 pedes­trians involved:

  • 24 reported no injury
  • 35 experienced minor injuries
  • 6 experienced modera­te injuries
  • 11 did not report th­eir injuries to poli­ce
