CAS processing update – February 2018

We have target processing times for all crash reports. These targets relate to the time taken from the date that the crash report is received by The Transport Agency until the time it is entered in the crash analysis system (CAS). Delays in reporting a crash to The Transport Agency, and errors in initial reporting (e.g. an injury crash initially reported as a non-injury crash), may lead to delays in the crash being processed.

The following sections provide more detailed information about the current situation (as at 7 February 2018). This information will be updated frequently. 

Fatal crashes

Our target is to process all fatal crashes within one working day of the crash report being received. This target is being achieved. We expect to continue to achieve this target, and will provide an update if this changes significantly.

Injury crashes

Our target is to process all injury crashes (serious and minor injury) within four weeks of the crash report being received. This target is being achieved. We expect to continue to achieve this target, and will provide an update if this changes significantly.

However, as noted in the information on non-injury crashes, as at 7 February 2018 we have approximately 3,500 un-processed crash reports. We anticipate that most of these will be non-injury crashes, but we estimate that up to 2.5% of these may be initially incorrectly received as non-injury and will not be identified as such until the report is processed.

Non-injury crashes

Our target is to process all non-injury crashes within three months of the crash report being received. We are achieving this target. We expect to continue to achieve this target, and will provide an update if this changes significantly.

We have successfully reduced the backlog to approximately 2,000 un-processed crash reports. We anticipate that the vast majority of these will be non-injury crashes, but we estimate that up to 2.5% of these may be incorrectly noted and will not be identified as such until the crash is processed.
