Readers may request further analyses of the road accident statistics held in the Scottish Government Transport Statistics branch database, but three points should be noted:

1. The Transport Statistics branch does not answer requests for local information: these should be addressed to Police Scotland or the appropriate Council.

2. The amount of information that can be provided in response to requests may be limited, depending upon the resources that are available to carry out the work, and on any restrictions that may be necessary to maintain the confidentiality of the data.

3. A charge may be made, depending upon the amount of staff time required to answer a request.
