Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 1 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, following reports on 22 January 2018 that 99% of drivers on the A90 obeyed the speed limit in the third quarter of 2017, when it will publish accident statistics for that period.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 6 March 2018

Injury road accident data is provided by the police in arrears from the various operational Police Force areas across Scotland. Exactly when this is done for any part of Scotland is a matter for the Police as part of their wider operational resourcing and overall support for road safety.

The injury road accident data for Scotland in 2017 is still being collected and validated. Provisional statistics will be published in the publication Key Reported Road Casualties Scotland in June 2018.
