MPI 2017 Traffic Collision Statistics Report
2017 Traffic Collision Statistics Report – Executive Summary
Motor vehicle collisions resulting in a fatality, injury or property damage only are required by law to be reported to either a law enforcement agency and/or to Manitoba Public Insurance. Subsequently, a Traffic Accident Report (TAR) for the collision is created. The Traffic Collision Statistics Report deals with these reportable collisions and the TARs arising from them.
The Traffic Collision Statistics Report is the official report of traffic collision statistics in Manitoba. It reports the details surrounding traffic collisions in Manitoba, allowing users to analyze the reasons why collisions occur. Knowing more about collisions helps policy makers, traffic safety experts, public safety programmers and legislators to pinpoint areas for review and create targeted approaches to preventing and reducing traffic collisions.
Due to amendments to the Highway Traffic Act that took effect in 2011, this report uses two sources for Traffic Accident Reports (TARs); TARs completed by a law enforcement agency and TARs completed when a collision claim is registered with Manitoba Public Insurance. This change resulted in an increase in minimal injury and property damage only (PDO) collisions in the Traffic Accident Report Database that had previously been underreported.
The following is a presentation of the key highlights of this report for 2017.
