Collision frequency continues to climb

Collision frequencies continue to grow at an overall rate of 2.5%, according to the Allstate Canada Safe Driving Study. In addition, the results of the study reveal that the most serious type of collision is that involving pedestrians or cyclists, followed by frontal collisions.

“It is certainly encouraging to see a drop in the frequency of collisions in some parts of the country. However, the overall frequency of collisions is on the rise, which we find all the more disturbing as the most serious collisions involve cyclists or pedestrians,” says David MacInnis, Vice President, Product Management at Allstate.

These results show that there is still much to be done to reduce the number of accidents, especially as we approach the most dangerous season on the road.
