Propensity to be involved in a road traffic collision in Greater London is likely to depend on many factors, including personal mobility, lifestyle, behaviour, neighbourhood characteristics and environment. This paper seeks to identify in terms of geodemographic type the propensity of individuals to be involved in collisions and to examine geographic variations in such propensities with distance from Central London. Results for Central London suggest only a small number of Mosaic types portray a higher than average index score (over 100), translating into a higher risk for a smaller proportion of London’s geodemographic types. This contrasts with results which show a larger number of Mosaic classifications having higher than average index scores further from Central London. The results highlight a need, through enhanced spatial analysis, for better understanding of the spatially incidence of collisions which are putting at risk the lives of London residents.
