Alcohol related Road Traffic Collisions (FOI)

Alcohol related Road Traffic Collisions (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 28 February 2017.



I would like to know roughly how many vehicles are registered in Jersey at this moment.


And for the years 2014, 2015, 2016, I would be grateful if you could tell me how many traffic accidents with death or serious injury (requiring an ambulance to hospital from the scene) have been caused in Jersey due to vehicle drivers being over the current drink / drive Jersey limit.



The Department for Infrastructure advise that as at 20 February 2017 there are 124,747 registered vehicles.

Please note that this is the total number that are on the vehicle register. It does not reflect the number of vehicles actually on the road (for example failure to notify of scrapped or exported vehicles etc.)
