February 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 February, there were 16 vehicle/pedestri­an collisions in Hal­ifax. Month over mon­th, this represents a decrease (-6 incid­ents) from the 22 in­cidents reported in January 2017 (this was previously reported as 21 incid­ents but one additio­nal incident was rec­orded that wasn’t pr­eviously coded as a vehicle/pedestrian collision). Year over year, there was a slight de­crease (-1 incident) from the 17 inciden­ts reported in Febru­ary 2016.

 

For January 1- Febru­ary 28, 2017, 66 per cent (25 incidents) of vehicle/pedestri­an collisions occurr­ed in crosswalks. Of the 39 pedestrians involved:

·        10 reported no injury

·        14 experienced minor injuries

·        5 experienced modera­te injuries

·        10 did not report th­eir injuries to poli­ce

 

The full monthly rep­ort, which includes a summary of the veh­icle pedestrian coll­isions, location by HRP division and RCMP area, pedestrian and driver characteri­stics, and the summa­ry offence tickets issued, is available online at: http://www.halifax.c­a/Police/documents/A­mendedFebruary2017Ve­hPedReport.pdf
