According to that all the incidents near me involved vehicles, that was the only common factor.
No cause was specified in any case.
There were high winds at the time of over half.

I had a look at my local area, West of Cambridge. Several references gave snow as the condition, we hardly ever see snow these days, certainly not in May.

A site I like better, but data only spans back to 2005 is: http://www.crashmap.co.uk/
The map will list 3 categories: Slight, Serious, Fatal
The BBC only showed 2 crashes for my area but the site I listed shows over 20 accidents in the area

the BBC site only shows fatalities, restrict yours to fatal and it is about the same

I never noticed that, thanks.
I had a better look at the site I posted and it doesn't really give you much details. If you register an account, they charge £1 per report to view, or you can batch view reports for around £60 Sad

Re: what caused the road deaths in your area 1999 - 2010

Yesterday I looked at my local area (using postcode) on this map (BBC) and it gave weather conditions for many of the local fatalities.  Later in the day I returned to the site to show to my wife but oddly the weather conditions were missing.  Today I looked again to check something and now the accidents are missing from the map. Only the totals for each local area.  Any one else found this problem and a cure?

Tried changing zoom with no effect. Tried refresh, tried clearing history, tried using Internet Explorer v Firefox, tried a different area.  All no change
