Number of car breakdowns in the UK organised by make/model

The request was partially successful.

Dear Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency,

I would like data on the number of car breakdowns on UK roads between 2014-2019 broken down by vehicle make/model, and fuel type (electric, petrol, diesel, hybrid). Please provide this as an Excel spreadsheet (or similar format), broken down by fuel type and month (or year if month is not possible).

I am also interested in the number of car makes/models that have been recalled between 2014-2019. Please can you provide this data, broken down by month (or year) and by make/model and number of recalled vehicles.

Yours faithfully,

Sabrina B

Dear Ms Bucknole

 

Information requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FoIA)

 

Further to your request of 11 September, I can confirm that we have
handled your request for information about vehicle information, within the
terms of the FoIA.

 

Your request and our response is as follows:

 

I would like data on the number of car breakdowns on UK roads between
2014-2019 broken down by vehicle make/model, and fuel type (electric,
petrol, diesel, hybrid). Please provide this as an Excel spreadsheet (or
similar format), broken down by fuel type and month (or year if month is
not possible).

 

Our response: we do not hold information about breakdowns on the road.
This might be something Highways England could help with or the AA and
RAC.

 

I am also interested in the number of car makes/models that have been
recalled between 2014-2019. Please can you provide this data, broken down
by month (or year) and by make/model and number of recalled vehicles.

 

Our response: Please see annex A attached.

 

If you are unhappy with the way we have handled your request, you can ask
for an internal review by contacting Vasim Choudhary, Public Liaison
Manager, at [2][email address] or at the above address.

 

 

Yours sincerely
