Metro News

By Emma Jackson, Ottawa Metro News, October 4, 2016

The city will release its 2015 collision analysis this month, but Metro Ottawa has obtained the Ottawa police data in advance – and it’s got some good news.

The raw numbers show a big drop in reported cycling and pedestrian collisions – 21 per cent and 40 per cent, respectively, over 2014 police stats.

City and police staff have refused to comment on the numbers – or even what’s behind the decline – until the numbers have been crunched and released publicly.
