Ottawa Car Accident Statistics. Sadly, there was a significant spike in fatal Ottawa accidents in 2011 with 38 people dying on Ottawa’s roads. The number of life-threatening personal injuries dropped in 2010. Since 2006, the number of life threatening personal injuries has dropped every year. The Safer Ottawa Roads Program report indicates that the injury trend is probably the more significant when it comes to measuring the safety of Ottawa’s roads. There’s a fine line between dying in a road accident and being seriously injury. The report also measured the death and injury rates per 1,000 people. It showed clearly that Ottawa roads were much more dangerous back in the 1990s. The report also breaks down personal injury and deaths from 2003 to 2010 by whether people were cycling, walking, or riding or driving in a vehicle. In both cases, slightly more than 7 /10 victims were motorists or passengers, 2/10 were pedestrians, and slightly less than 5/10 were cyclists. Let’s do everything we can do decrease the number of Ottawa car accidents and personal injuries and death resulting from car accidents.
