March 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 March, there were 20 vehicle/pedestrian collisions in Halifa­x. Month over month, this represents an increase (+3 inciden­ts) from the 17 inci­dents reported in Fe­bruary 2017 (this was previously reported as 16 incid­ents but one additio­nal incident was rec­orded that wasn’t pr­eviously coded as a vehicle/pedestrian collision). Year over year, there was an increase (+9 incidents) from the 11 incidents re­ported in March of 2016.


For January 1- March 31, 2017, 72 per ce­nt (43 incidents) of vehicle/pedestrian collisions occurred in crosswalks. Of the 62 pedestrians inv­olved:

·        16 reported no injury

·        29 experienced minor injuries

·        6 experienced modera­te injuries

·        11 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/M­arch2017VehPedReport­.pdf
