ODUG Benefits Case for the Open Release of Police National Stolen Vehicle Data

As part of its current push on vehicle related data requests ODUG is today following up on the benefits casecalling on the DVLA to release its bulk data as Open Data under an Open Government License (OGL) with a similar benefits case calling for the release of the Police Stolen Vehicle Data

The release of this data would potentially result in less vehicle crime (through increased transparency), a higher rate of resolution of police stolen vehicle cases (through improved public engagement), safer roads (less stolen and uninsured vehicles on the roads) and reduced insurance claims/payouts. The estimated benefits to society of opening up this data are in excess of £2bn per annum.
