Road crash analysis
We collate and provide road crash statistics using data from NSW Health, the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA), icare (Insurance & Care NSW) and the NSW Police Force. Each day we process and edit road crash data to obtain information on deaths and serious injuries for every crash. We monitor and report fatal crashes in the:

Our road crash data is used by the public and organisations such as the Federal Bureau of Infrastructure; Transport and Regional Economics; NSW Police Force; NRMA Motoring & Services; Australian Bureau of Statistics; local governments; road safety researchers and community groups.
