Surrey RCMP Release The Top 10 Vehicle Collision Locations

Darpan News Desk, 12 Jun, 2019

    Last year in Surrey, 19 people were killed as a result of motor vehicle collisions and a further 20 people were seriously injured. The number of pedestrians struck by vehicles: 290.


    This May, there was a collision related death or serious injury every week.


    Surrey RCMP is releasing these figures to the public to highlight the serious impact that collisions have on our community, and to urge all roadway users to follow BC’s traffic laws.


    High risk driving behavior contributes to a large proportion of fatal and serious collisions. Those driving behavious include distracted driving, speeding, and impaired driving. The majority (80%) of collisions occur at intersections.


    Using data from the previous three years our analysts have identified a list of the top collision intersections in Surrey.


    Each intersection below is listed with the number of collisions occurring over the previous three years.

    1. 128TH ST / 96TH AVE – 24
    2. 96TH AVE / KING GEORGE BLVD – 18
    3. 104TH AVE / KING GEORGE BLVD – 18
    4. 64TH AVE / KING GEORGE BLVD – 17
    5. 176TH ST / FRASER HWY – 16
    6. 128TH ST / 72ND AVE – 16
    7. 72ND AVE / KING GEORGE BLVD – 15
    8. 68TH AVE / KING GEORGE BLVD – 14
    9. 128TH ST / 80TH AVE – 14
    10. 88TH AVE / KING GEORGE BLVD – 13


    Police enforcement alone can not make Surrey’s roadways safer, said Sergeant Ian MacLellan, Surrey RCMP Traffic Services. We urge our roadway users to follow the rules of the road, and to understand that by doing so, they will prevent motor vehicle collision deaths and serious injuries in Surrey.
