As part of our continued focus on pedestrian safety, Halifax Regional Police and Halifax District RCMP have committed to releasing a monthly vehicle/pedestrian collision report to provide police and citizens with more contextual information on this issue.
During the month of June, there were 15 vehicle/pedestrian collisions in Halifax; they all took place in HRP jurisdiction. Year over year, this represents a decrease from the 19 incidents reported in June of 2014. For the first six months of the year pedestrian/vehicle collisions decreased 22 per cent year over year.

• 25 reported no injury
