(c) (i) Two Head Office vehicles were written off, no Mission vehicles were written off.
(ii) One vehicle was written off due to severe structural damage to the chassis. One vehicle was not economical to repair due to high mileage and value compared to quoted repair costs.
2. In view of the cost versus risk, the current fleet at Head Office does not have tracking devices fitted. It is not standard practice for vehicles in Missions to have tracking devices installed. Vehicles are insured where required by local legislation.
