Members of the public can now report crashes using an online form to help Dorset Highways collect valuable information about incidents on our roads.
The Report a collision form is available on dorsetforyou.com and works in the same way as the ‘report a road problem’ form.
Road traffic collision data is validated and provided to us by Dorset Police, this data includes collisions that result in personal injury. Although this provides us with valuable information it doesn’t give the complete picture of the incidents on Dorset’s roads.
Crashes reported using this new form will feed into our formal collision site investigation programme, and could inform future works if the site is found to be in need of improvement. Although an individual report may not necessarily result in immediate action, it will ensure that we are better informed than we have been in the past.
Please note, if you’re reporting a collision that has resulted in damage and requires immediate attention, such as debris on or obstruction to the highway and/or damage to street furniture, then this must still be reported on 01305 221020. This will ensure immediate action can be taken to rectify the problem. Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to get in touch.
