The map shows the distribution of road traffic accidents by district and severity in Hong Kong in the year 2007.

"Severity" is divided into three categories as represented by bar charts: fatal (maroon), serious (blue) and mild (sand). The total number of road accidents is represented by graduated colour, from green to red (least to most). Data were obtained from the Transport Department, HKSAR Government.

By district, Yau Tsim Mong had the highest number of traffic accidents, totalling 1490, followed by Shatin, 1146 and Kowloon City, 1114.

Districts having the highest number of accidents did not necessarily mean high fatality. The number of fatal cases was highest in Sham Shui Po (19), followed by Kwai Tsing (14) and Yuen Long (13).

地圖顯示香港各區二零零七年按嚴重程度劃分的道路交通意外數字。

嚴重程度分為三級,用長條圖表示:致命(褐紫紅色)、嚴重(藍色)及輕微( 淺棕色 )。而該年交通意外總數由漸變顏色代表,從綠色至紅色(少至多)。數據由香港政府運輸署提供。

油尖旺區的道路交通意外總數最高達1490宗,其次是沙田區,1146宗和九龍城區,1114宗。

然而,高的道路交通意外總數不一定代表高致命個案數字。深水埗的交通意外致命個案最高達19宗,其次是葵青,14宗及元朗,13宗。
