FOI Request - Potholes Compensation
1. How many claims has the council settled and how much has it paid in out in compensation to cyclists and other road users injured by potholes or defective surfaces in each of the past five financial years?
Please Note: Payments are reimbursements for damage/loss through insurance – not compensation
Cyclists claims settled – 0 in the past 5 financial years.
Other road users – <5 in the past 5 financial years. The number claims by other road users is less than 5. Due to the low numbers involved, release of this information could result in the identification of individuals. This information is therefore exempt under Section 38(1)(b) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 - Personal Information.
