HC Deb 02 December 1926 vol 200 cc1355-6
8. Mr. RYE

asked the Home Secretary whether he can give the numbers of persons killed and injured by motorists or arising out of motor accidents in the Metropolitan area in each month, respectively, since one-way traffic was instituted, and the figures for the corresponding months of 1925?


Comparing August, September, October and November, when seven of the schemes introduced this year were in operation, with the corresponding months in 1925, the figures are as follow:

1925. 1926.
Fatal. Non-Fatal. Fatal. Non-Fatal.
August 17 15
September 16 32
October 28 29
November 1 29 2 31
These figures include accidents caused by horse-drawn vehicles. I would add that it is impossible to say whether any and, if so, how many, of the accidents in the present year may have been due to the introduction of the schemes.
