In 2022, over 3,800 land traffic collisions (LTCs) were reported to the Movements & Transport Safety Regulator (MTSR), resulting in one on duty death and 44 injuries. A further nine armed forces personnel were killed in off duty incidents during 2021.

Whether on or off-duty, LTCs remain a leading cause of fatalities and injuries across the Ministry of Defence (MOD). Whilst deaths from LTCs have decreased over the last 35 years, they consistently
remain in the top three causes of armed forces fatalities. These tragedies disproportionately affect younger personnel.
