Police Vehicle Write Offs (8576_16)


1. How many of your vehicles were destroyed (by destroyed I mean damaged beyond economic repair) in 2015/16 following any kind of road traffic accident? What was the make and model of the most expensive vehicle that was written off.
2. What was the total cost of this damage to your service because of the accidents referred to in Q.1? . What I mean by this is the pre-accident value of the vehicle that was written off. If you were insured and suffered no direct cost other than through your insurance premiums, please provide me with a figure for the total value of those vehicles when written off?
3. In the 2015/16 financial year, how many claims of compensation were paid to members of the public who were injured in a collision involving one of your vehicles and what was the total amount of the compensation? Please note that members of the public could be a passenger in your vehicle, a pedestrian or the driver/passenger in another vehicle.
Note: The question relates to the date the claim was paid irrespective of when the accident took place or when the claim was made.
