request for Information on Non stop and uninsured collisions

The request was successful.

Dear Cleveland Police,
I am conducting research on a national basis into uninsured / non-stop collisions and am surveying forces across the country to ascertain the scale of the issue.
I am aware of Stats 19 data but much of the below data is not available from DfT via stats 19 on a force by force basis hence the request in this format.
Can you please provide the following data relating to non-stop Road Traffic Collisions in your force area.

1) Number of RTC’s reported year by year in your force area for the period 2014 – 2019
2) Breakdown of those RTC’s into Fatal, Injury, Damage only year by year
3) Number of RTC’s classified as non-stop in your force area for the period 2014 – 2019 Broken down into Fatal Injury, Damage Only year by year
4) Number of RTC’s classified as non-stop where an offender was traced and subsequently prosecuted for offences of failing to stop, / failing to report a collision for the period 2010 – 2019 broken down to Fatal, Injury and Damage Only
5) Number of Fatal RTC’s where a vehicle failed to stop for the period 2014 – 2019 and total number of deceased from those fatal RTC’s
6) Number of non-stop fatal RTC’s 2014-2019 whereby no driver was ever prosecuted for FTS
7) Number of RTC’s where at least 1 driver / vehicle was shown as uninsured for period 2014 – 2019 and number prosecuted year by year
8) Number of Fatal RTC’s whereby at least 1 driver / vehicle was uninsured and total number of fatalities from these RTC’s for the period 2014 – 2019

Yours faithfully,

Paul Bennett
