A request for information about statistics of RTC’s/ pedestrian incidents for Oakham Road & Tansley Hill Road – 18129

Ref: FOI/18129

RE: FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 REQUEST

I am writing to confirm that the West Midlands Fire Service has now completed its search for the information you requested on 3rd September 2018.

Please find below a summary of our findings.

Request

Where can I obtain statistics of RTC’s/ pedestrian incidents for the above streets in Dudley please.

As a neighbourhood group, (Nextdoor Tansley Hill) we have severe concerns and are frustrated with the lack of action taken by Dudley MBC.

We wish to petition against the Council and require this information to help our corner in getting some traffic calming measures introduced. Any logs from WMP/ WMFS would be appreciated under the Freedom of information Act for the last 5 to 10 years.

Can you let me know :

Number of accidents (RTC) per year

Number of pedestrian incidents (knocked over by car)

Number of fatalities

Reply

The below is a table showing the number of RTC incidents attended by WMFS between 01/04/2009 and 01/04/2018; this is as far back as i can go in our data.

Year OAKHAM ROAD TANSLEY HILL ROAD Total
2009 1 1
2010 1 1
2011 1 1
2012 1 1
2013 1 1
2015 1 1
2016 3 1 4
2017 3 3
2018 1 1
Total 13 1 14

 

We don’t record whether a pedestrian was involved in the collision or if they were ‘knocked over by a car’ therefore it is exempt under Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Over the same period, there was also no fatalities for those specific roads.

We do not release incident logs into the public domain as they contain personal information about our firefighters and other information about our mobilising arrangements. Personal information is exempt under section 40(2) of the FOIA.

I would suggest that you contact the Police as their record may contain more information than WMFS and they also attend a lot more incidents.  Police data can be found by using the STATS19 data by using the link below
