Sian Berry AM: Very quickly, if I can, I have received data from the Mayor in a Mayor’s Question [response], for the first time getting the number of prosecutions for hit-and-run road crime offences. I have a year’s data there now to look at. I have compared it with the hit-and-run injury incidents for a year and, effectively, this is less than a third of these incidents coming to reach prosecution.
I wanted to ask why this rate of prosecution is so low. These are hit-and-runs where people are injured. They are effectively violent crimes. Why is that prosecution rate so low?
