Summary:
The overall objective of this project was to examine in more detail associations between area‐based deprivation and road casualties. In particular, this project examined associations between deprivation and specific sub‐categories of pedestrian and cyclist casualties. These included different levels of casualty severity (fatal, serious, and slight), whether the crash took place in darkness, and for pedestrians, young and older age cohorts, and the location of the pedestrian in or near the road (on refuges, footways or verges, and crossings).
