In 2005 there were 32,155 people killed or seriously injured in accidents reported to the police in Great Britain, 33 per cent. below the 1994-98 baseline average. We are on course to achieve the 2010 target of a 40 per cent. reduction. There were 3,472 children reported to be killed or seriously injured in 2005, 49 per cent. below the baseline average, against a 2010 target of 50 per cent. The target to reduce the slight casualty rate by 10 per cent. was met in 2002.
