Killed and Seriously Injured (KSI) Crash Rate

An average of 20 people are killed in Surrey collisions each year. In addition to the tragedy of road deaths, at least 12,000 people are injured every year. The social costs and impacts of these losses are difficult to measure, and life-changing injuries create a burden on families, friends, communities, the health sector, insurers and social services. In 2019, the City launched its Vision Zero Surrey Safe Mobility Plan to guide our efforts to reduce severe crashes while increasing safe, healthy and equitable mobility for all. The fundamental message of Vision Zero is that death and serious injury on city streets are not acceptable and that we will no longer regard serious crashes as inevitable. We have set out to reverse the upward trend in injury collisions in our city and have targeted a minimum 15 percent reduction in killed and seriously injured (KSI) crashes per 100,000 population between 2019 and 2024.
