Question

Transport for London (TfL) is updating the main database of road collision data, Accstats 2. Could TfL embrace a road danger reduction approach and name this database as Collstats 1 rather than Accstats 3 to reflect a focus on collisions rather than accidents?

Transport for London (TfL) is currently updating the ACCSTATS2 collision system as well as considering the naming of the new system. I agree that COLLSTATS aligns with our road danger reduction approach and I have asked TfL to reflect this in the naming of the new system.
