INNER Ipswich is the region's most accident-prone area.
The civic hub, with 1010 crashes over 12 years, holds first place for the number of crashes. Rounding out the top five are Goodna on 913, North Ipswich on 506, Redbank on 438 and Booval on 382.
Cr Cheryl Bromage said the council liaised with government and police to keep crash numbers down.
"Crashes in the Ipswich local government area occur on both state-controlled roads such as motorways, highways and major arterial roads and on local government roads," Cr Bromage said.
"While Ipswich City Council is only responsible for the local roads, it works very closely with the state and federal governments to ensure a safe and integrated approach to the management of the entire transport network."
She said officers from council, the State Government and police regularly met to consider transport and traffic issues.
