Road traffic collisions injury statistics (FOI)
Road traffic collisions injury statistics (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 26 April 2021.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
How many people have been hurt and needed treatment from the general hospital from road traffic incidents involving cars or motorbikes from 2015 to 2020 inclusive, broke down into parish and year.
The attached spread sheet indicates the numbers of all slight, serious and fatal road traffic collisions (RTC’s) since 2010. The second sheet shows those RTC’s which involved Motorbikes and / or cars. The third sheet shows records available from Jersey General Hospital Emergency Department where the diagnosis is Road Traffic Collision. Please note that this is a count of patients, not incidents.
RTC Injury by Parish and Jersey General Hospital Emergency Department
A breakdown by Parish of where the incident occurred is not held. Data is not available prior to 2013 due to a change of system. To retrieve any data available prior to that date would exceed the prescribed 12.5 hours working hours allowed for Freedom of Information responses in accordance with Regulation 2(1) of the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014.
All serious injuries would have gone to hospital; however, some of the slight injury incidents would also have gone to hospital. A full review of individual cases would be required to give exact figures attending hospital for ‘slight injury’ RTC’s. This would take longer than permitted under the regulations for completing FOI requests.
Article 16 A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive
(1) A scheduled public authority that has been requested to supply information may refuse to supply the information if it estimates that the cost of doing so would exceed an amount determined in the manner prescribed by Regulations.
Regulation 2 (1) of the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014 allows an authority to refuse a request for information where the estimated cost of dealing with the request would exceed the specified amount of the cost limit of £500. This is the estimated cost of one person spending 12.5 working hours in determining whether the department holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the information.
