Please let me know how many road traffic accidents have been reported on the junction know as La Croix Au Lion on St Peters main road each year over the last 20 years. Also how many accidents required an ambulance.
The information held by the States of Jersey police is limited to information from 2004 onwards. The location La Croix Au Lion is only recorded in six road traffic collisions (RTC’s) during that period. On two of those occasions, in 2004 and 2008, an ambulance took the riders of motorcycles to hospital. Both had been in collision with motor vehicles.
Researching further, of the 118 RTC’s recorded on La Grande Route De St Pierre since 2004, a further eight were located at the junction with La Grande Route Des Augrez or La Rue De La Pointe, which make up the same junction. Police records show an ambulance was called once in 2015 but not required to transport any casualties.
Some of the 118 records just show the location of the RTC as ‘La Grande Route de St Pierre’ so it is not possible to be totally accurate with the above figures for that particular junction. A total of eight RTC’s were recorded at the next junction on the main road with La Neuve Route, in the same period.
Records from Jersey Ambulance Service only cover the past 10 years and show that they attended two RTC’s at that location. That would concur with the figures from the States of Jersey police.
