The second-highest number of such crashes took place in North Belfast, with 122 collisions, followed by West Belfast with 97 injury-involved crashes. East Belfast saw the lowest number of such collisions during the four months, with 82 taking place.
In the six months between April 24 and October 24, police confirmed there have been 2,543 crashes throughout all parts of Belfast that were damage-only, and so did not result in any injury occurring.
Commenting on these figures, Head of Road Policing at the PSNI, Chief Inspector Graham Dodds said: “Reducing the number of people killed and seriously injured on our roads is a priority for police and the Road Safety Partnership.
“We remain committed to working with communities and partners to make our roads safer for everyone, however, the stark reality is that many collisions can be avoided.
“The simple fact is every road user, whether you are a driver, pedestrian, cyclist, horse rider or motorcyclist, has a responsibility to use the roads safely.
“Pay more attention, reduce your speed to suit the conditions, always wear a seatbelt, put the mobile phone away, and never drink or take drugs and drive.”
