In reply: We acknowledge our error in reporting Henley and Harrison’s findings,1 and commend Bradley and colleagues for providing information about traffic and non-traffic transport injuries separately. We are also pleased that the National Injury Surveillance Unit will soon publish a report including analysis of trends in non-traffic transport injuries, extending our analyses beyond New South Wales. This is consistent with our conclusion that more needs to be done to understand non-traffic crashes.2 We defend our claim that the statistics in many reports and articles often do not clearly distinguish between traffic and non-traffic crashes and injuries.
