Figure 4.4.10: Emergency Department visits from different types of transport collisions by sex
Counts and Age-standardized rates per 100,000 population, Middlesex-London, 2015-2017 Average
Collisions involving bicycles are the most common type of transport collision in Middlesex London, after MVCs. A bicycle collision may have included a motor vehicle but injury rates presented represent the injuries of those on the bicycle. The rate of emergency department visits for injuries for bicycle collisions was, on average 186.6 per 100,000 people per year in the years 2015 to 2017.
Males had more than double the rate of injuries from cycling then females.
Pedestrians are the next most common to be injured with 58.4 per 100,000 on average per year, with no significant differences between sexes.
All-terrain vehicles, excluding snowmobiles, had a rate of 31.7 per 100,000 ED visits and snowmobiles had a rate of 6.0 per 100,000. In both of these types of vehicles, males were significantly more likely to go to the emergency department with an injury than females. In the case of ATVs, the rate was three times higher in males than in females and for snowmobiles it was seven times higher.
