The Centre for Road Safety (CRS) has established the routine collection and reporting of data on serious injuries from NSW road crashes. This new information shows that the profile of serious injuries and fatalities are different, and highlights the need for practitioners to use serious injury data in setting the road safety agenda and delivering initiatives to reduce serious injuries on roads.
