Vehicle Crime + Road Traffic Accident Map
Enter Your Postcode To Check The Crime In Your Area!
We've mapped a year's worth of crimes and road accidents across the UK to help you understand how safe your area is.
Simply use the map's searchbox below to enter your postcode and map the traffic accidents and vehicle crimes in your area. Update: You can now view the crimes and accidents simply by scrolling the map to the area you wish to view.
How safe is your car?
Alongside your profile as a driver - which can include your history, your age and the make and model of your car - a major factor in the price of your car insurance premiums can be where you live, drive and store your car.
You can use this map and accompanying statistics to get a guide as to how high the vehicle crime rate is or whether you are in an area that has a high number of road accidents. If this is the case, you may find adding security features to your car such as alarms, immobilisers and tracking devices, or finding off the road parking in your area, could dramatically improve the premiums you are offered.
About this data
This map and the statistics come from data supplied by the Department For Transport and the Police. Since the most recent accident statistics compiled by the DfT are from 2010 we have mapped the whole year and compared them against the Police statistics for the same year. Unfortunately neither the Police nor the DfT provide statistics for Northern Ireland.
Please note that due to the volume of data it may take up to a minute to collect all the data from the Police API. It is also important to note for the vehicle crime data that the Police only provide data accurate to the street level, so the position of the marker on the map is approximate and not neccessarily the exact point at which the crime occured.
