Traffic Safety compiles annual summaries of collision statistics from the Edmonton Police Service's detailed reports.
They maintain the Motor Vehicle Collision Information System (MVCIS), a database of motor vehicle collisions that occur on public roads in the City of Edmonton. The information in the database is collected from the provincial Collision Report Form, which is completed by members of the Edmonton Police Service either at the scene of the collision or at the front counter of a divisional or community police station. The database reflects all reported collisions on public roadways that result in property damage of $2,000 or greater, as well as any collision that results in a minor or major injury or fatality.
The 2018 collision report will be available in early April 2019. The following is a summary of 2018 motor vehicle collisions.

Our bodies are fragile and even a small difference in speed can mean the difference between life and death. This is especially true for pedestrians, motorcyclists and cyclists. You can play your part by staying within the speed limit and driving to the conditions. Remember that a speed limit is a maximum travel speed, not merely a guide.
Between 2012-2016, there were 833 fatal or serious injury collisions in 50 km/h zones and 700 in 60 km/h zones. Driving even a few kilometres over the speed limit adds to the risk.
When in a crash in Edmonton, compared to motorists:
- Pedestrians are approximately 55 times more likely to die
- Motorcyclists are approximately 30 times more likely to die
- Bicyclists are approximately 6 times more likely to die
