Road Safety Statistics

National statistics on fatal road crashes are updated each month in the online Australian Road Deaths Database, and in the Road Deaths Australia monthly bulletins. Annual publications include the Road Trauma Australia statistical summaries, the Heavy Vehicle statistical summaries and an International Comparisons report. A quarterly publication updates statistics on heavy vehicle crashes.

BITRE also publishes occasional reports and information sheets on various road safety topics.
