About the data
The collision data held by West Sussex County Council is collected by and is the property of Sussex Police. WSCC only hold accident data reported to Sussex Police, that occurred in the 'highway' and that resulted in a personal injury.
Damage only collisions (where no one was injured) are not included in our database. As part of an ongoing data improvement process data may be adjusted and therefore may differ slightly from the data held by Sussex Police.
Requests for data from West Sussex should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please allow up to 10 working days for a response. Please note that we cannot provide details for specific accidents but this information may be obtained from Sussex Police by calling 101 and asking for Sussex.
