I've never managed to figure out why a fatal collision costs so much (£1.9 million stated in the article). Can anyone explain

I'd guess they count the cost of calling out the Police, Ambulance then Hospital/Coroner costs followed by accident investigation and inquest into the accident. Add in insurance costs for the lives affected, I can see how it could be £1.9m.

I don't agree with using figures to justify their existence.

The only way I could think of would be taking the cost of keeping the services in place then dividing it by the number of deaths.
