The following table shows a) the number of accidents and b) the number of killed or seriously injured casualties resulting from reported personal injury road accidents involving at least one bus or coach manufactured before 2011.

These statistics only include vehicles for which the police provided a registration mark and which matched the DVLA database to enable the age of the bus/coach to be ascertained. Around 19% of the buses and coaches reported personal-injury road traffic accidents did not have a valid registration mark recorded on the form for various reasons, such as it simply not being noted down or figures being transposed, and so are excluded from this analysis. The police records cannot distinguish public service vehicles from other buses and coaches, so the figures provided are for all buses and coaches irrespective of the ownership or use of the vehicle.
