star this property answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not maintain a central record of the number of drivers prosecuted for offences of failing to stop at the scene of a road traffic accident.</p><p>The offence of failing to stop at the scene of a road traffic accident is created by Section 170 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 which imposes obligations on drivers of mechanically propelled vehicles who are involved in road accidents.</p><p>Although it is not possible to identify the number of <em>people</em> charged with particular offences, records are held by the CPS showing the overall number of <em>offences</em> in which a prosecution conducted by them commenced in the magistrates’ courts. The table below therefore shows the number of <em>offences</em>, rather than <em>defendants</em>, charged by way of Section 170 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 during 2015 and 2016. It should be noted that a single defendant may be charged with more than one offence.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>2015</p></td><td><p>2016</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Road Traffic Act 1988 and Schedule 2 to the Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988 { 170 }</p></td><td><p>9,825</p></td><td><p>9,056</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Data Source: CPS Case Management Information System</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>It should further be noted that failures to stop at the scenes of traffic accidents are specified proceedings. These are offences which the police prosecute in order to reduce unnecessary bureaucracy and ensure swifter justice. The CPS will only prosecute a specified offence in cases where a not guilty plea has been entered. It may also be the case that the CPS will prosecute this offence when the defendant is charged with other more serious associated offences (for example, failing to stop and dangerous driving or driving under the influence of alcohol). The figures in the table above do not include those specified cases prosecuted by the police.</p><p> </p>

We acknowledge that levels of violence within the youth estate are too high and outcomes for children and young people in custody are not good enough. Following the Government’s response to Charlie Taylor’s review of the youth justice system, a new Youth Custody Service (YCS) has been created to focus on performance in the Youth Secure Estate and a Youth Justice Reform Programme has been established.</p><p>The aims of the programme are to improve standards by making youth custody a place of safety, both for young people and those who work there; and to improve the life chances of young people in custody. We are investing £64 million to entrench the reform of youth custody. We will boost the number of frontline staff in youth offender institutions by 20% – 120 additional recruits, including newly trained specialist youth justice workers, equipped to tackle the needs of young offenders. We are also developing two new Secure Schools.</p>
