The report looked at a decade of collision data for correlations between risk and community deprivation and ethnicity, and found that deprived and ethnic minority pedestrians are three times more likely to be injured on Britain’s roads.

It also reveals that deprivation more than doubles the risk of becoming a pedestrian casualty.

The report says this increased risk may be due, in part, to the amount of time spent as a pedestrian – as people from ethnic minority groups and poorer communities are more likely to walk and less likely to have a car.
